Sicko

I'm always amazed at the subject matter of Moore's films. In fact, I was particularly interested in this film, as I have experienced first hand the difficulty of dealing with spiraling health care costs. What I found most curious was the level of detail in which Moore described the accounts of people affected by disengaged health care administrators.

Though not surprising, you can appreciate that pharmaceutical industry is a mega-business which does an excellent job capitalizing on FUD campaigns. A prime example would be this so-called swine flu. There has been a huge up swell of influenza claims and other types of virus hysteria.

Moore also does a decent job connecting the government to the large pharmaceutical lobbyists. The pharmaceutical ecosystem is quite immense and there are organizations that simply do not wish to see it dismantled.
