Michael Moore's Sicko is the Best Film he has Made

Just watched "Sicko" by Michael Moore and it was great!

I haven't been a big fan of his films in the past because they tend to be over-sensationalized and emotional without really examining the issues.

Sicko starts off looking like a typical Michael Moore film replete with testimonials of people complaining about our health care system. It then transitions into more of a true documentary by asking the important questions and taking a look at the answers.

The film examines the health care system in Canada, France and England. It looks at the incomes of doctors working in those socialized medicine countries. It looks at the quality of their health care systems and their prescription drug prices.

Unfortunately, the film totally misses the boat when it tries to explain how our American health care system got so broken. For that, please see this article in my blog: Health Care Crisis

I highly recommend everyone to see the film "Sicko" by Michael Moore.
