Sicko

July 14, 2007 at 10:43 am (review movie)

I saw Sicko last night when our plans to see Harry Potter fell through. What an incredible film. I want everyone I know to see this. Unfortunately, because Moore’s political views, I don’t believe this will get the resounding attention it deserves. The very fact that our “health care” system in this country is for profit is wrong.

Roger Ebert wrote a great review for the Sun Times:

“It’s a different Michael Moore in “Sicko.” He still wears the baseball cap, but he’s onscreen less, not so cocky, not going for so many laughs. He simply tells one story after another about Americans who are sick, dying or dead because we have an undemocratic, profit-gouging health care system. Moore’s films usually make conservatives angry. This one is likely to strike home with anyone, left or right, who has had serious illness in the family. Conservative governments in Canada, England and France all support universal health care; the United States is the only developed nation without it.”
