I think that “behind those thousand bars no world” indicates that there is no outside when it comes to people with parkinson’s, they only live trapped in their own bodies, except the episodes of awakenings. Moreover, it could mean that parkies are prisoners of their bodies. My impression was generally positive, I was really impressed by dr Sayer, because sacrificed his personal life in order to help other people and he had hope that he could have helped people with parkinson’s as distinct from other physicians in the movie.
