Sicko

Sicko is a very good documentary with a compelling message. America can do better. Yes, Moore sometimes employs melodrama and shows only one side of the “debate”, but if there’s an equally powerful, rational message on the other side, why isn’t someone making a movie about it (or making the case in any other compelling manner?) The free market often works well with a goods or services that people want and which business is rewarded for providing. But it doesn’t seem to be the best solution to health care, a service that (i) normal consumers don’t “want” unless circumstances force them to need it and (ii) insurance companies are rewarded for denying rather than providing.
