  • Likely the most astonishing of the late-period Maysles films, Letting Go: A Hospice Journey intimately observes hospice workers as they take care of three dying patients. One subject is forced to confront everyone he’s hurt in his life, including his wife... While this animosity eventually comes out into the open in bitter verbal fights, Maysles’s camera picks up on the tension early with a close-up of the husband’s arm frantically grasping his wife’s arm while she remains passive and reserved.
