In the documentary Sick, the film's subject is shown in the days and hours before his death from cystic fibrosis. He is essentially comatose as his body gasps for air. His partner sits at his side, comforting him. This is shown without dramatic buildup, music, or manipulative editing. The scene is completely raw, which makes it all the more affecting.
What other documentaries show the dying process in a raw and unedited form?
