[Whose Life Is It Anyway?] is an engrossing drama despite its grim subject. Full Review
Dreyfuss never seems to get far enough into his character to make his anguish -- or his decision to fight -- real. Full Review
Santa Cruz Sentinel
Focuses on the right to die wishes of a sculptor who's paralyzed and provides viewers an opportunity to test their attitudes toward making choices about life and death. Full Review
Spirituality and Practice
The inadequately and misleadingly titled Whose Life Is It Anyway? is a brilliant emotional exercise which ambitiously and heroically wrestles with the most emotional issue of all -- death. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:
Gifted sculptor Ken Harrison is now a hospitalized quadriplegic. And no matter how much he makes light of his condition, another kind of light inside him grows dim. In this screen version of the hit play, Richard Dreyfuss plays Ken, jousting with physicians, teasing nurses and striving to persuade hospital authorities and the justice system that he can't be denied one of the few choices he has left.
