Genre: Comedy Documentary
Starring: The American Health Care System
Directed By: Michael Moore (Bowling For Columbine; Fahrenheit 9/11)
Overview: In his documentary about the American Health care system, Michael Moore explores socialized health care, taking us to Canada, England and France, sharing HMO horror stories and pulling his usual stunts.
In 2002, Michael Moore hit the scene like a fireball with Bowling for Columbine. A deep, funny, ever-relevant look into gun control and social mores as it relates to America. In this, one of my favourite documentaries, he really turned a tragedy into a potential force of change.
Then 2004 came along and with it, many would say, a detrimental Fahrenheit 9/11. With 9/11 even the leftest-winged Democrats wondered if Moore had gone too far trying to convince the world that George W. Bush was truly sinister. Moore forgot his audience, and rather than preaching to the choir, he should have gone the way of the humbler, more investigative reporter.
If Bowling for Columbine is Moore's shining glory and Fahrenheit 9/11 is the child that should have been left behind, then we find Sicko in the middle: a funny, shocking and enlightening look at the corrupt for-profit institution that is the American Health Care system.
The main questions Moore asks is, "Why isn't America on a socialized system?", "What are the pros and cons?", "What are Americans going through compared to other countries?"
As per usual, Moore takes a comedic and human approach at answering these questions, like taking sick Americans on a trip to Guantanamo Bay in hopes of getting adequate care. "They don't want special treatment," Moore yells through his bullhorn at the guard tower, "they just want to have equal access to the free medical treatment the Al-Quaida prisoners are receiving!"
Overall Rating: 80% (Turn Your Head and Watch)
The problem with documentaries is that they can focus too strictly on one question, which often makes a film boring. On the contrary, a film can be directionless in its approach. In Moore's latest, he treks resolute towards making his point in an entertaining way, and more importantly, Moore has begun again in re-building his reputation as a storyteller of the facts, and a light-bearer to the unknown.
