SiCKO - Michael Moore
I watched Michael Moore's new film today, "SiCKO". It's another 2+ hour Michael Moore'ism, which people will either love or hate. The movie contains a few core valid points, a touch of humor and a bucket load of crocodile tears. As always with Moore's films, it becomes painfully obvious when he's cherry picking facts and figures, in this case, highlighting how wonderful health care systems are in other countries. Please note that while he champions Britain's NHS, he never gets a chance to comment on Irelands wonderful two-tier "worst of both worlds" system.
The best part of the movie comes near the end when Moore reviles that he paid the annonymous donation of $12000 sent to his Internet Nemesis moorewatch.com, to help pay for the medical treatment the webmaster's wife needed. I wouldnt go as far as saying that this was a cynical move by Moore, but it certainly was included to inflict damage on moorewatch.com.
I'm waiting for someone to make a documentary about Michael Moore himself. About how he always makes the grass seem greener on the other side, hiding the patches where the dog pissed on.
