Last night Don and I watched a video a friend gave us. It was Sicko by Michael Moore. I had heard about this movie but was not prepared for what I saw.
I had heard of Michael Moore and knew he made controversial movies. To be honest, I didn't think I wanted to see this movie because of Mr. Moore's reputation. But I'm glad I did.
This movie is a documentary on our health care system here in the United States. I think it was well done and I didn't find any part of it boring. On the contrary, I found it all very interesting.... and sad.... and sickening.... and unbelievable... and maddening... and amazing... and definitely worth watching.
And that is why I highly recommend it. Not only does it shed light on our health care system and the insurance industry, but it gives us a glimpse into how other countries run their equivalents. Very enlightening, and I wish every citizen of the good 'ole US of A would watch it. We need change but first we need to know exactly what is happening and how it is affecting all of us.
Let me know if you've seen this movie, or after you see it. I'd love to hear your impressions.
