Actors :Michael Moore
After exploring the predominance of violence in American culture in Bowling for Columbine and taking a critical look at the September 11th attacks in Fahrenheit 9/11, activist filmmaker Michael Moore turns his attentions toward the topic of health care in the United States in this documentary that weighs the plight of the uninsured (and the insured who must deal with abuse from insurance companies) against the record-breaking profits of the pharmaceutical industry. Moore interviews a number of people who have been left broke by medical bills even though they were fully insured, and explains how the corporate drive for profits has left numerous people in financial and medical disarray. After hearing that detainees in Guantanamo have access to free health care, Moore assembles a group of World Trade Center rescue workers to travel to Cuba in order to get the medical help they need for ailments they incurred in 2001. Moore's film debuted at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Some New Trailer For Sicko
New Review For Movie SickoIf other countries can provide their people with universal health care, why can't we? If we can't, who are we?
Lisa Schwarzbaum-Entertainment Weekly
Though the focus occasionally strays, the film emerges as a fascinating exploration and powerful indictment of a pressing national problem. This is Moore's biggest, best and most impassioned work.
Claudia Puig-USA Today
'Sicko' is a quieter, more focused and less feral beast than its predecessor, 'Fahrenheit 9/11', but that's not saying much.
Dave Calhoun-Time Out
One may quibble with Mr. Moore's anecdotal oversimplifications and his xenophilic fantasies, but he has struck a socio-psychic nerve in the body politic, generating a feeling of outrage that seems to be reverberating in every theater.
Andrew Sarris-New York Observer
This is a movie to see in a theater. It'a group experience. All through the show you'll hear people laughing, crying, muttering, cheering, sighing, swearing, and gasping. And at the end, chances are they'll be on their feet applauding.
Jonathan F. Richards-Film.com
More humble than Fahrenheit 9/11 and as enthralling as Bowling For Columbine, Sicko is another target hit square on the nose for America's premier documentalist.
While much of Sicko is certainly propaganda, that should not deter anyone from seeing it or giving some credence to what Moore is saying, because what he is talking about is very real and very important.
Saddening while it still bristles with satire, "Sicko" does dodge some of the larger political questions about healthcare reform. Plus, the Cuba stunt mars what is, up to that point, a relatively stunt-free film.
Moore depoliticizes the health care crisis by humanizing it, and drops the polemic in favor of a plea: for us to care about each other a little more.
By now, it should only matter that Moore has been right about every social ill he's addressed.
Kelly Vance-East Bay Express
ranks among [Moore's] best
Jay Antani-Cinema Writer
Laughs are thin on the ground, but this is a must-see by a film-maker at the height of his powers.
The body politic deserves a finer thermometer than Michael Moore's camera
Fernando F. Croce-CinePassion
Michael Moore takes on the US health care system. His in your face style may annoy some people, but he lets you know he's in favor of socialized medicine and, to be fair, he wisely presents AMA spokespersons, doctors and others who claim put health care i
For the first time, the targets of Moore's film need not fear the bearded, heavyset man; instead they should be worried about his audience.
Sean Gandert-Paste Magazine
...primarily comes off as an uneven effort that's sporadically as superfluous as it is interesting...
David Nusair-Reel Film Reviews
Moore's mere presence becomes politicizing, but this film attempts to make people realize the health of people in this country should have nothing to do with income and politics.
Jeff Bayer-The Scorecard Review
While no rational person would believe Castro and Hillary are to be exalted, its medical horror stories are absolutely believable by anyone who's dealt with an HMO.
Bruce Bennett-Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
Prepare to laugh (nervously), cry and be outraged.
Marlow Stern-Manhattan Movie Magazine
The film contains the usual Moore plusses and minuses, now familiar to anyone who's watched even one of his films.
Lawrence Toppman-Charlotte Observer
Otro contundente alegato de Michael Moore que (...) conmueve y entretiene en partes iguales, atrapando a lo largo de sus dos horas.
Enrique Buchichio-Uruguay Total
Moore has again made a film which, though basically sound in logic, sugars the pill in a way which seems suspect in its determination to suggest that, as far as healthcare is concerned, America is bad and everywhere else is good.
Derek Malcolm-This is London
A devastating exposure of America's iniquitous healthcare system, coolly marshalled and amusingly detailed by Moore.
Moore is rightly celebrated for his elaborately staged stunts and this film's highlight, involving a boat-trip to Cuba, is as hilarious as it is disturbing.
