Sicko

Dir: Michael Moore
123mins   2007   US   12A   English   

Filmmaker Michael Moore examines America's health-care crisis and why millions of citizens are without coverage. Moore spotlights the cases of several ordinary citizens whose lives have been shattered by bureaucratic red tape, refusal of payment, and other health-care catastrophes. He explains how the system has become so problematic, and he visits countries where citizens receive free health care, as in Canada, France and the U.K.

'Horrifying, heart-breaking, often hilarious - Moore's latest shock doc is a potent polemic'. Simon Crook, Empire Magazine
