Sicko (19-May-2007)

Director: Michael Moore

Writer: Michael Moore

Keywords: Documentary

Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore compares the United States' faltering healthcare system to systems found elsewhere in the world.

Michael Moore examines the American healthcare system's sorry state of affairs, comparing the phenomenon of profit-driven HMOs to government-granted, taxpayer-funded systems in industrialized nations like Canada and France. Special care is taken to mention the United States' absurdly low ranking in the World Health Organization's list of the best healthcare systems worldwide, coupled with a story of three September 11 cleanup workers compelled to travel to backwater Cuba to receive respiratory care their own country could not provide.
