Miah, A. (2006). "Doctor, Can You Fix My Broken Heart?" Journal of Medical Humanities 27(2): 127-129.This article began after watching the wonderful film 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' directed by Michel Gondry. It was not the first time I have thought about the way film can convey ethical issues related to medical technologies. One of the other films that sticks in my mind is Extreme Measures. There are many more and this review essay is now being developed into a more substantive article for an edited volume by Sandra Shapsay entitled 'Bioethics through Film', which will be published with Johns Hopkins University Press.
