"Burzynski, the Movie" is the story of a medical doctor and Ph.D biochemist named Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski who won the largest, and possibly the most convoluted and intriguing legal battle against the Food & Drug Administration in American history. His victorious battles with the United States government were centered around Dr. Burzynski's belief in and commitment to his gene-targeted cancer medicines he discovered in the 1970's called Antineoplastons, which have currently completed Phase II FDA-supervised clinical trials in 2009 and could begin the final phase of testing-barring the ability to raise the required $150 million to fund them. When Antineoplastons are approved, it will mark the first time in history a single scientist, not a pharmaceutical company, will hold the exclusive patent and distribution rights on a paradigm-shifting medical breakthrough. Antineoplastons are responsible for curing some of the most incurable forms of terminal cancer. Various cancer survivors are presented in the film who chose his treatment instead of surgery, chemotherapy or radiation - with full disclosure of medical records to support their diagnosis and recovery - as well as FDA-supervised clinical trial data comparing Antineoplastons to other available treatments. This documentary takes the audience through the treacherous, yet victorious, 14-year journey both Dr. Burzynski and his patients have had to endure in order to obtain FDA-approved clinical trials of Antineoplastons. However, what was revealed a few years after Dr. Burzynski won his freedom, helps to paint a more coherent picture regarding the true motivation of the United States government's relentless persecution of Stanislaw Burzynski, M.D., Ph.D.

I just finished watching this film with mixed feelings. Firstly, while I concede that at times it could be seen as an advert for the Burzynski Clinic, the actual facts and circumstances of the witchunt by the FDA - and make no mistake that is precisely what it is - makes this an intriguing look at the power of both the FDA and the Pharmaceutical industry as a whole. The actual reaction by these bodies and their internet minions has been far more revealing. Clearly, those most making a noise have largely been those in pay to Big Pharma as well as those so stuck in scientific dogma and the cancer industry that they cannot possibly step outside of such a narrow view and will draw on data that is extremely selective and biased in order to cement that view. Every criticism I have read has come from those with a reductionist chip on their shoulder or with many years invested in the medical research, the hobby of skepticism for skepticism's sake or the PR of the Pharmaceutical industry.

Now, I am not saying that Mr. B 's work is the ultimate cure and to be fair nor does he. But he has had proven successes where conventional treatments have failed - clearly. And one must also question the nature of a dominant pharmaceutical monopoly that has routinely suppressed and intimidated those with genuine alternatives. To believe otherwise is just niave. That is the nature of the corporate-led world in which we live. That is the nature of any industry that makes billions and billions of profit. Mr. B may be at times flawed in his pursuit of his drug but I do not believe he is a quack and I do agree with his many successful patients that he is genuine.

love the movie/documentary/commercial for Burzynski.....whatever one calls it!: ) first of all it discloses perfectly that NO pharmaceutical company, health authority in the whole world( in this case US) cares about a patient, his/her well being /survival , terminally ill patients who should have especially well thought through therapies and consultations.All these companies care about is only MONEYYYYYYY! hey! very uplifting folks: ).then someone like Burzynski comes across, who uses in his clinic alternative methods or innovative methods of cancer treatment in his patients. He isnt just nobody coming out of nowhere, studied medicine, done his research and came to certain conclusions, in fact his discoveries and treatment are quite a positive revolution& noew on a medical horizon The evidence of survival rate is provided and I do not think for a moment that it is false or ungrounded.The numbers speak for themselves.It does not say or promises that all of his patients are, will be cured of cancer..it says that compared to standard chemo treatment offered regularly for cancer patients , usually very aggressive and full of side effects his method provided better outcome both in terms of life expectancy and survival as well as side effects post treatment. Burzyski semmes to have better success rate with difficult to treat and dangerous forms of cancer where standard medicine cannot do much or gives a patient rather gloomy outlook, then someone very ill turns to Burzynski as his/her last resort! many are cured not all, they pay , of course it is a private clinic, everyone else does it so why it is so strange and different with Burzynski?Read more ›

This is not a movie or even a documentary. It is what's usually called an infomercial. That is, it's a commercial for the Burzynski Clinic thinly disguised as a documentary. Ok, that would be acceptable if there was any evidence to show that Burzynski's "antineoplaston" therapy actually had any published evidence of benefit. If you search the database of medical journals - PubMed - you will find just 38 articles using the search term "Burzynski antineoplaston". None of these publications are reports of completed clinical trials. Most are laboratory studies, the remainder are no more than case reports or tiny series of cases in the form of preliminary reports of mixed up trials. Burzynski is allegedly running clinical trials of his antineoplaston therapy, but since his first publication on the subject back in 1976 he is still to publish any meaningful results. This is despite running 61 clinical trials according to the US registry of clinical trials, searchable at [...] Of those 61 trials, only one has ever been completed - the results have never been published. The rest are either withdrawn, terminated or of unknown status. This represents an abject failure by Burzynski to produce any evidence of benefit whatsoever.
Caveat emptor - but remember this is the life of yourself or a loved one you might damage.

Everything is backwards in the world of Dr Buryznski.

This film is available free and in full online with full permission of its makers, no concerns about movie piracy there. However, while film makers generally ensure they get payment for their work, it becomes understandable when viewing this: it is nothing more than a one-sided advert for the Burznski "clinic" (in reality a second floor room in a multi-occupied office block).

The financial disregard stops there however. And boy, does it stop. Normally clinical trials, which is how Burnyski recruits his patients given his claimed therapy is not licenced and has no proper data published on it, are fully paid for by the people running the trial. While some patients can get access to new drugs and other supportive care free via taking part in trials, Buryznski's patients have to pay £200,000 or something similar. Interestingly, Burzynski's published and publically available financial returns account for his trial spending in a totally different way to normal trials and allow the impression they may not be investments for future product income. This is highly unusual given the staggering claims made for the therapy in this "documentary".

Much material is online now about Burzynski's publications, scientific qualifications, claimed results, financial charges etc as the result of attacks on bloggers critical of his activities, and the "Streisand effect" that followed. The worst of these attacks, possibly, was directed against Rhys Morgan, a 17 year old blogger who magnificantly turned the tables on the attempted silencing. Take the time to read what's out there, then compare to the calims made in this "documentary" and guage its value.

Burzynski is unique in current medical science in charging for clinical trials instead of paying for them: there is no better example of "caveat emptor".
