5.0 out of 5 stars Challenging and evocative, 12 Jan 2012
This review is from: Attenberg [DVD] (DVD)
Attenberg has so far received rave reviews from the media, and this is definitely not by chance. The film puts forward its profound essence with a thoughtfully simplistic manner and serene tempo. It's faithfully anti-prosaic with just as much talk as needed. Feelings and thoughts are mostly conveyed non-verbally; this is challenging both for the actors and the spectators. Acting is simply great; both Kazan and Stanislavsky would bow in respect if they were given the chance to watch this movie. The plot is thought-provoking with a certain Freudian twist. Overall, Attenberg a celebration of love, life, sexuality and emancipation but without any argumentative or propagandistic tendencies.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreliable, contradicts established guidelines, 2 April 2011
As a Greek-educated physician working in Sweden, I find the contents of this book objectionable by both Greek and Swedish standards. Take for example case 31, page 141, where slowly reducing alcohol intake is suggested as a preventive measure against alcoholic seizures. Instead of properly adjusting the dose of the prescribed benzodiazepine to ease withdrawal symptoms, the author(s) suggest that the patient himself should self-medicate with alcohol. I wonder how practical this is, given the fact that most people abusing alcohol have extremely limited awareness of the extent of their abuse.

I therefore recommend against buying this book, and I suggest caution in following its advice to the people who already have it in their bookshelves.
