Americas most incendiary filmmaker Michael Moore returned in 2007 with this health-care-industry expose. SICKO tackles material as controversial as the topics explored in Moores other films yet does so in a way that places the focus on ordinary Americans affected by the nations health-care crisis. After providing some historical background on how our nations medical care system became so ravaged and unfair Moore interviews a series of individuals and families who have had their lives all but destroyed by the denial of care in the service of profit. While there are two sides to the gun-control debate and even a legitimate discourse for how to best wage the war on terror its simply impossible to justify how a baby girl can wind up dead because her mothers health insurance wasnt accepted at a nearby hospital. Moore smartly allows this and other stories to be told with little or no interference conjuring strong feelings of empathy rage and deep sadness.
