Excellent presentation. This is what makes me like Michael Moore. His presentation is precise and complete. The issue is investigated in multiple dimensions. In this context, I recall Chomsky’s word of advice on how one should not take information coming from any source (even credible ones) to be a fact without applying one’s discretion and own investigation. This obviously holds for such documentaries too.
The documentary explores the failings of the health care system in the US and the increasing shift of interest from the citizens to the insurance companies. He contrasts this with the socialized health care systems in Canada, UK and France — showing they are not a failure. And as always, he ends it with a brilliant plot (won’t spoil that for you).
