Michael Moore compares America's profit-driven health care system to that of a few other countries, and the results aren't pretty. Just a reminder, as we struggle to get Obamacare up and running, why reform was considered necessary in the first place. 

"If you listen to what the leaders of both political parties are saying, it seems unlikely that the diagnosis offered by “Sicko” will be contested. I haven’t heard many speeches lately boasting about how well our health care system works. In this sense “Sicko” is the least controversial and most broadly appealing of Mr. Moore’s movies. (It is also, perhaps improbably, the funniest and the most tightly edited.) The argument it inspires will mainly be about the nature of the cure, and it is here that Mr. Moore’s contribution will be most provocative and also, therefore, most useful."

A. O. Scott, The New York Times
