Moore has touched on a good subject and handled it in the best way he knows how. One of his better documentaries.

Moore's documentaries are always quite convincing till you think about the glaring omissions. Yes, the U.S. health care system is not just broken, it is deranged, but in order to discuss solutions, you can't just skirt around inconvenient facts (or selectively edit your footage) as Moore does. His Cuba stunt at the end was grossly manipulative.

"Sicko" by Yojimbo

Yojimbo - wrote on 02/12/2012

Once more Michael Moore takes on the stealth dictatorship of corporate America, this time in the arena of healthcare. The thing that surprised me about this film is that I assumed it would be about the disenfranchised poor who were forced to live without health insurance. But it isn't. It's mainly telling the stories of productive working families who were paying for their insurance, just to have the companies who represent them use every means necessary to wriggle out of paying out when they were needed, sometimes resulting in eventual bankruptcy or tragedy for those involved. It's difficult to stomach the fact that a regime that constantly bangs on about "family values" supports a system that lets little girls die because they went to the "wrong" hospital or leaves old ladies still in …

Sickening in the Right Way

You should know by now what to expect when going into a Michael Moore documentary. He is completely one-sided, but despite his leanings, he has a remarkable way of presenting his argument that is both humorous and yet tragic.

Now, being objective, I'm sure there are horror stories from Canada, England and France regarding their health systems, but Moore makes it clear that America would greatly benefit from some form of universal health care. It's like comparing the slums of New York to some Hollywood mansion. Heck, even Cuba is shown to have a better system.

Our entire systems is bass-ackwards. I don't care how big or rich a drug company or any other organization is - just because you throw a bunch of money around shouldn't mean you get what you want, but because we're so focused …

Eye-Opening

I don't even know where to begin. This film shocked the hell out of me. I saw this with a friend who has relatives in the United Kingdom and he says that Michael Moore is right about the difference between the insurance here in the United States and the insurance there in the UK. Intense tear-jerker moments are abound because one cannot help but feel bad for the families who got screwed over by the greedy insurance companies. The United States government is not innocent about these happenings either. In fact, they encourage and profit from the suffering of others... and they do not feel remorse about it. This film opened my eyes in so many ways because I had this idea that America had the best health coverage in the world. In fact, that way of thinking cannot be any more wrong. I guess …
