Sicko!!

Happened to watch it after quite some time (the movie being released for quite some time and everything). Its definitely an eye opener, though. The movie was not great to start with, but after a while it picked up. Shortly into the movie, you covet a socialized healthcare scheme in your country as well (that might be a distant dream).


Glued to the idiot box and gobbling up everything there is on America, I guess you tend to get Americanised, and start loving all things American, including "freedom fries". This movie draws on a different perspective and highlights the woes of the middle class of America.

I don't know for sure if the movie/documentary was a work of fiction, but its definitely a good "kick up your butt" that makes you reevaluate the high standards that we (outsiders) have of all things American.

Happy movie viewing and hats off to Mr. Moore for another stellar effort for an eye opener.

On a different note, here's what Lee from Moorewatch has to say about Michael Moore.
(for the unenlightened few, Lee seems to have had a very dispassionate opinion of Michael Moore.)
