Awaiting his own demise from motor neuron disease, Neil Platt sets about arranging his affairs and dictating a blog, via a voice recognition system, that offers updates on his condition and inspirational messages. Echoing the personality of its subject, Emma Davie and Morag McKinnon’s doc walks the line between a deathwatch film and an uplifting one, rather than simply rubbing the viewer’s nose in the horror of mortality. Unfortunately, the only other thing they’re able to provide is Platt’s bland encouragements to live life before it’s too late.
