If you want to stay healthy in America, don’t get sick.
Following on the heels of his award winning hit “Fahrenheit 9/11” and his Oscar® winning film “Bowling for Columbine,” acclaimed filmmaker Michael Moore’s new documentary sets out to investigate the American healthcare system. Sticking to his tried-and-true one-man approach, Moore sheds light on the complicated medical affairs of individuals and local communities. “Sicko” promises to be every bit as indicting as Moore’s previous films.
Manipulative, propaganda pusher Michael Moore is back with a new piece of film this summer. This time, he’s taking on the healthcare industry in Sicko. The tough thing about Michael Moore movies is that even when you agree with his point of view, it’s hard to agree with his method of conveying it. If you saw Fahrenheit 9/11 and weren’t completely blinded by extremist zealotism when you watched it, then you know what I mean.
Unsavory tactics or not, his latest film is certain to make a splash. Moore is more of a provocateur than a documentary filmmaker these days, and Sicko will probably evoke outrage in nearly everyone who sees it, albeit for completely different reasons.
