‘Coma’ Movie Summary

Coma is the story of a young woman doctor who discovers something sinister going on in her hospital. Relatively healthy patients are having ‘complications’ during simple operations and ending up in comas. The patients are then shipped off to an institute that looks after them, and the young doctor suspects there is more to this than meets the eye.

Very excited by The Apartment! Great to see more Billy Wilder. I just watched Coma, its fine. Think it’s the first Richard Widmark film reviewed. He was in some great noirs.
Since A Star Is Born was mentioned, has anyone seen the remake? Amazed by the success of it, lots of Oscar buzz.

Coma is a great little film…nothing ground breaking though. I haven’t watched a Star is Born yet. My mom thought it was just okay. I have heard mixed reviews about it though.

Guess Sunset Blvd is the only one left of Wilders famous great films to review, will that make it on noirsville before here?

I think it will be on Noirsville sometime next year, but it’s my 34th pick for Movie House Memories currently, so it won’t be out on that one until 6/1/2020.
