La Dosis Movie Review
Not a Full Dose

At a time when medical personnel, especially nurses, are revered for their utterly selfless work during the COVID-19 pandemic, Martin Kraut's "La Dosis" (The Dose), presents a very different view of the nursing community, in this case, in Argentina.

Marcos (Carlos Portaluppi) is a veteran nurse in an ICU unit of a clinic. He never takes vacation or any other days off. As far as we can tell he has no social life. All of his time is spent at work. Marcos is quiet but gets along fine with his co-workers and he's very good at his job, except for one thing: when a patient is terminally ill, he takes it upon himself to inject them with something to hasten the process. He's a nurse version of the famed Dr. Kevorkian. Your view of Martin will be dependent on your view on the topic of euthanasia.

Everything changes when Gabriel (Ignacio Rogers), a new young nurse, is added to the ICU unit. He has an easygoing demeanor and is always quick with a seemingly innocent smile; but right away, Marcos and the viewing audience wonder if he is what he appears to be.

We soon learn that Gabriel has an agenda that is of great concern to Marcos, and this is where "La Dosis" begins to fall apart. What could have potentially been a gripping thriller becomes a series of illogical decisions by Marcos. There's also a hint that we might be headed into a psychotic homo-erotic story, but that never really gets fleshed out. It's just left hanging.

By the end of "La Dosis" I was bored and disappointed. It could have been so much more, and that's the worst part of the whole thing. Blame bad writing for it landing with a thud - no one needs a dose of this one.
