CHICAGO – Dealing with pain has become almost an obsession with Americans. Between over the counter sales of pain relievers, doctor visits and the prescription abuse of painkillers, a crisis has come about. Why are we hurting? Director Michael Galinsky, with co-directors Suki Hawley and David Beilinson, explore an alternative means of pain treatment in “All the Rage” The film returns to Chicago at the Gene Siskel Film Center on January 26th & 27th, 2018, and Galinsky will appear with Dr. John Strack, a local physician who practices the mind/body healing of the film’s subject.

“All the Rage” is subtitled “Saved by Sarno,” which refers to Dr. John Sarno, a physician whose work with the mind’s connection to healing has been groundbreaking… but only on an underground and word-of-mouth basis. With so much mysterious back pain, plus joint and muscle aches, Sarno had advanced that it is the body’s reaction to emotional stress – a syndrome he calls Tension Myositis. The key is to find the source of that stress, and miraculously, pain and conditions that perplex western medicine have been known to disappear. Galinsky was a patient of Dr. Sarno, and makes his journey the centerpiece of the fascinating documentary, which includes interviews with famous Sarno patients, Larry David and Howard Stern.

Michael Galinsky is a veteran documentary maker, who usually collaborates with his wife Suki Hawley and David Beilinson. Two of his notable docs include “Battle for Brooklyn” (2011) and “Who Took Johnny” (2014). HollywoodChicago.com did a phone interview with Galinsky at the Chicago Underground Film Festival in June – where the film made its Chicago premiere – and repeats it in anticipation of the screening at the Siskel Center.


“All the Rage: Saved by Sarno” screens January 26th (8pm) and 27th (5pm), 2018, at the Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 North State Street, Chicago. For more information, click here.
