About the Movie
A Finished Life follows the "Goodbye and No Regrets Tour" of Gregg Gour, a 48 year-old gay man with AIDS, who, when given six months to live, takes the road trip of his life. Gregg embarks on an emotional and surprisingly upbeat trip across America to visit, for the last time, friends and family before ending his own life - on his own terms.
Good Movie/Bad decision
I found the movie to be well done and heartfelt but his decision to me is lame and dramatic. I’ve had AIDS since I was 16 years old. So 27 years now, and my life is a gift. Especially, considering that in 1986 when I was first diagnosed there was no life to look forward to. Yeah, medication sometimes has it’s downsides, but even with all of that NOTHING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING compares to LIFE. I am thrilled that I have been able to run marathons, do the AIDS Life Cycle, see concerts and share good times with friends at 43 years old. The meds haven’t given me an awful existence. He’s acting like it’s this really bad axe to bear. It’s ridiculous. Total drama queen. He could have taken meds and supplements and eaten well and he would have had another 30 years or so. Its unbelievable. I feel bad telling a fellow gay man with AIDS that, but the truth is that the ONLY REASON his body was failing was because he chose to go off life saving medication. Sorry it’s totally weird and dramatic and selfish. Nice guy. He has a lot of love in his life but I wouldn’t want to be the dark thoughts in his head. So so crazy. I also think that after all the fighting we have done to stay alive and all the friends that we had to watch suffer that he would just choose to go thought that and more annoyingly that he would put his family through it and leave his poor dog. Urgh. Lame.
