Ram Dass: Fierce Grace

Spiritual guru Ram Dass attempts to recover from a stroke, which he dubs "fierce grace," in this documentary produced and directed by Mickey Lemle, a close friend of Dass for decades. Dass, author of the lauded Be Here Now, was felled so severely by the illness that he became paralyzed -- but in true Ram Dass fashion, he saw it as a reason to look death in the face.

An ingratiating and comprehensive portrait of the widely admired spiritual leader.
Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times  full review
Parts of the film feel a bit too much like an infomercial for Ram Dass's latest book aimed at the boomer demographic. But mostly it's a work that, with humor, warmth, and intelligence, captures a life interestingly lived.
Jonathan Perry, Boston Globe
A sober and affecting chronicle of the leveling effect of loss.
Mark Holcomb, Village Voice  full review
A generous, inspiring film that unfolds with grace and humor and gradually becomes a testament to faith.
Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle  full review
Following Ram Dass down from his pedestal gives Mr. Lemle a way into his subject that will compel the viewer.
