SicKo, A Michael Moore Documentary
In June 2007 documentary, filmmaker Michael Moore explores the US health care system, exploring the doings of big name pharmaceuticals and the dominant private insurance companies. He compares and contrasts socialist health care systems in Canada, Cuba, England, and France with the US health care system, critically scrutinizing the privatization of health care in the US while making his case for the need for, as he sees it, universal health care. We'll watch Moore's documentary as an intro to our look at health care as a contemporary issue. . .one that directly encompasses 3 of 8 the UN's 8 Millennium Development Goals. You can check out the official Sicko site here to read current updates on the controversial movie and the movement that has won several Academy Awards.
