About the Movie
Could we be preventing millions of heart attacks from happening every year? Four million Americans die from heart failure every year, the majority of the cases are sudden death, with no warning signs at all. But heart attacks and strokes are preventable, so why do we still see so many of these cases? The Widowmaker uncovers the chilling conspiracy of silence that surrounds large corporations who don’t want to see people getting better.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "The Widowmaker" is commendable in that although it is a work of advocacy, it gives an array of opinions.
Fresh: A lucid and important work of advocacy journalism. It illuminates yet another way that mainstream medicine thrives on crisis rather than health.
Fresh: The Widowmaker is important and terrifying, enough that I became nervously aware of my heartbeat throughout.
Fresh: It does what good documentaries should do: it shines a very focused light on a very specific problem, a problem that affects millions of people and their families.
This was a very informative documentary. Anyone over the age of 30 and anyone with a family history of cardiac complications must watch this.
