Pain but No Gain: Pain as a Problematic and Useless Concept?
References to the human experience of “pain” are common, but those references are often ambiguous and vague. Such ambiguity creates conceptual and practical challenges, especially in the work of clinical ethics consultation. While pain is a relevant clinical problem, it is also a social construct shaped by culture, environment, and gender. These distinctions however get lost in a simple “pain” reference. With several clinical ethics scenarios, Dr. Eijkholt will ask if references to pain help us with anything, or if we should perhaps abandon pain as a “useless concept.”

Two unemployed young men meet a rather fringe character called Das. Das is essentially a courteous kidnapper. If he had any wealth, he could be called a gentleman kidnapper. And it’s the three trying to pull a high profile kidnapping, but other characters come in to mess it up. All the while, they’re being chased by a mute cop who’s very good at what he does. The movie features several great character actors from the industry and insane music.
