SiCKO (2007)

SiCKO is probably the best documentary directed by Michael Moore. The film investigates the American health care system, focusing on its health insurance and pharmaceutical industry. It compares the for-profit, non-universal U.S. system with the non-profit universal health care systems of Canada, the United Kingdom, France and Cuba.

This film is not about the 47 million Americans who don't have health insurance, it's about some of the 250 million who have/had health insurance and in spite of this their lives were ruined.

A softer, less angry Moore taking a good hard look at the current state of the American private health care system and dispels a lot of the myths espoused by some in America such as long waiting lines, higher taxes and the doctors being paid close to nothing. Michael Moore allows a lot of space for people's stories to be told.

A documentary with optimism and hope despite being gripping sometimes. A must-see for everyone!
