Critic Reviews for Something the Lord Made
Softly lit and deftly acted, this drama is a fine recuperation of an important historical figure who pioneered cardiac surgery and modern surgery techniques.
Audience Reviews for Something the Lord Made
I was intruiged by this movie for some reason, not the least of which was the pairing of Flixster favorite Rickman with hip-hop star Mos Def. One of the best movies I've seen in years, even as the deck was stacked against Vivien for years.
Love this movie! Very touching and I amazed by the extent of the plot. Mos Def portrayed a remarkable character.

|Alfred Blalock:||You know Vivien, they say 'you haven't really lived, unless you have a lot to regret'... I regret...|
|Alfred Blalock:||Perhaps God is, as you say, trying to kill this child. I am not.|
|Alfred Blalock:||You know Vivien, I say you haven't really lived lest you have a lot to regret. I have some regret. But I think we should not remember what we lost, but what we've done. All the lives we saved and we did. We saved plenty, didn't we Vivien?|
|Alfred Blalock:||They say you haven't lived unless you have a lot to regret. I regret... I have some regrets. But I think we should remember not what we lost, but what we've done. All the lives we saved and we did. We saved plenty, didn't we Vivien?|
|Vivien Thomas:||The dead are with us all the time, I believe. Can't separate the past from the future anymore you can right arm from left arm.|

|Vivien Thomas:||All connected.|
