A Movie Reel

Sicko: 8.5 out of 10.

I actually watched "Sicko" last June when it appeared on Google Video.  I didn't review it then, because I just don't like watching movies on my laptop.  I find it impossible not to multi-task and I miss the larger screen and bigger sound.  I watched "Sicko" again last night with my wife and it's better than I remembered it.

I understand Michael Moore has his detractors, but he puts together compelling and entertaining docs.  I've enjoyed everything he's released, but "Sicko" might be his best work to date.  Of course, as a product of socialized medicine, I felt drawn to the content like a moth to a CFL light bulb.

Our system ain't perfect, but when one of us gets sick, it's awfully comforting to know that medical expense stress won't interfere with the healing process.
