Michael Moore (he of Fahrenheit 9/11 infamy) returns with another rabble-rousing documentary. This one trains its eye on the American health care system (currently ranked 37th in the world by the World Health Organization). Moore contrasts our corporate-controlled, HMO-dominated, pharmaceutical company-backed lack of universal health care with other countries (England, Canada, France and, you heard it right, Cuba), who actually care for their sick and injured. Surprisingly, this is one of Moore's more apolitical films, offering plenty of healthcare horror stories with hardly an ambush interview in site. 113 minutes PG-13.
