Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Following on the heels of his Palm d'Or winning 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.

Review:

"An affecting and entertaining dissection of the American health care industry, showing how it benefits the few at the expense of the many." Variety

Review:

"This is essential viewing — informative, corrosive, and even sometimes hilarious." Chicago Reader

Review:

"Sicko will scare people, and it probably should." San Francisco Chronicle

Review:

"This is the movie where Michael Moore gets a few Michael Moore haters off his back." Hollywood Reporter

Mick, December 6, 2007 (view all comments by Mick)
Sicko is an eye-opening documentary. It provides insights (and opinions) as to what works, or more pointedly, what doesn't work in the US medical care system. It also provides a view into how healthcare works abroad. Insightful, entertaining and great storytelling, and Moore doesn't get in the way of the information.
