Michael Moore’s Sicko
I went back and forth on whether I should link to this. But at the end, I decided if I was going to watch it then I shouldn’t stop others from watching it (especially since it is so relevant). So here is Michael Moore’s just released film in its entirety. Whoever posted the film also has a written a nice intro to the film:
Sicko is not a movie about the 50 million Americans walking around without health insurance. Sicko is a movie about the other 250 million of us who have insurance, but are just as well and truly screwed. It’s also about freedom, real freedom, not the empty kind that gets thrown around as a buzzword; the freedom to live your life with the certainty that forces beyond your control won’t take away everything you have and everything you are. We don’t have that kind of freedom here in America, and Moore’s film makes that point by simply talking to real people. They’re your neighbors, your friends, your parents, some of them are even 9/11 heroes. Moore uses his camera to let them tell their stories of insurance company mistreatment and in the process paints a complete picture of a corrupt and fatally flawed system which isn’t just killing people but taking away their dignity and their liberty.
This isn’t Moore’s best film but it is relevant to more Americans than any of his other films. It is also more emotional compared to his other recent work. Don’t miss it.
P.S. If you, my readers, or the people involved with the film want this post taken down, contact me because I will most likely do so. The guilt will get unbearable then.
