did anyone see it? I've always been peeved by michael moore cause he could make such a huge difference if didn't polarize the hell out of everything. shitty health care is something everyone from every political party can relate to but he had to open the movie with george bush making a verbal faux pas. it just discredits everything. but it was definitely his least biased movie. I dunno, I just wish he'd gotten someone else to present it so everyone from all walks of american life would take it seriously. it was really well done for the most part.

I've seen it and loved it. Not quite as good as Bowling, but probably his most heartfelt and least "biased" film.

Sure he probably took the best examples from Canada/Britain/France/Cuba, but i still think that he still managed to make a valid point. I've had no problems with the Canadian health care system, every time i've needed a doctor i was able to see one without much of a wait and i guarantee that i received the same quality care than any high priced US doctor could have given.

I still shudder every time I think about the guy who lost his middle and ring finger and had to decide which one he wanted to keep.

Loved it in that sense that it really, deeply disturbed me.

I can't believe she lost her insurance because of an undeclared yeast infection how many years earlier.

what happened? I went to get some water and I came back and she was talking about yeast infections, I couldn't figure it out.

I haven't seen Sicko yet, but i have really high expectations. Moore did a decent job with fehrenheit but most of his other stuff is really stylized and should be considered more comedy than documentary. Keeping himself away from the man with a camera aspect should work really well with him, as long as he does ethical editing.

On a side note, i find it funny how everybody criticized Moore and sucks Godard's proverbial dick over "Land without Bread." which is more false than any Moore film ever created.

Canadian Bacon is the best piece of work Moore has ever done.

As much as I dislike Michael Moore (he's the liberal Rush Limbaugh: fat, arrogent, and has a dishonest streak) I'll probably end up seeing this because when it comes to social issues, one of my biggest pet peeves is how our health care system works. I saw Moore on the Daily Show a week or so ago, and actually thought he made some good points without having to pound the "I DON'T LIKE BUSH" drum, so that gives me some hope that this will be better than his other crap.

Ha ha.


I already know our helath care system is fucked, I don't need the socialist version of Limbaugh to tell me that.
Pass.

I'm not giving Moore any money. I already know the healthcare system is screwed up but it might still be interesting to learn about in more detail. if I do end up seeing it it'll be because I downloaded it though.

Just to make sure everyone has a second chance to see this.
