Watch The Doctor (1991) - Alternative Versions.
It's not unusual in Hollywood for 2 studios to be working on similar
projects at the same time. One obvious example might be Milos Forman's
beautiful Valmont, and Stephen Frear's certainly adequate Dangerous
Liaisons. The latter featured a bigger' cast by American standards, and did
better business, not surprisingly.
About the same time as Randa Haines' beautiful, The Doctor', with William
Hurt was delivered, so was Mike Nichols Regarding Henry', starring
Harrison Ford. Again, the latter did bigger business, and as a result I feel
this film was largely overlooked.
On first look, The Doctor seems a standard tale: icy, successful surgeon
finds out what medicine is really like when the tables are turned and he is
diagnosed with throat cancer. His redemptive arc is somewhat predictable, as
he reconnects with family, redefines his medical practice, and restructures
his relationship with his similarly icy partners.
But it's under these, predictable circumstances that a true craftsman like
Ms. Haines can make the ordinary extraordinary. The film is genuinely
heartfelt and touching, resisting at every turn any self-indulgence, or the
gratuitous pulling at heartstrings, relying on a quiet, confidence, a softer
Not that it's not weepy at times.
Hurt has never been better in the title role. Elizabeth Perkins as his
soul-mate cancer victim is equally superb.
