Sicko

Michael Moore's new documentary - Sicko - is about to hit theaters on June 29. It is about the problems in the American health care system - and digs deep into the behavior of the insurance companies and the lack of universal health care coverage in one of the richest country in the world.



Are you going to see it?

Moore is currently under investigation by the Office of Foreign Assets Control because he took a trip to Cuba to film a scene with World Trade Center survivors who tried to get medical treatment at Guantanamo Bay - where the prisoners ("enemy combatants") are apparently given all types of medical treatments at no cost.

Question - does anybody know why the film is referred to as SiCKO (with only the "i" in lowercase?)

hmmm, good question, did some searching, but didn't come up with anything. Perhaps it brings our attention to the i - as a reference to where the answers are?

i think its a play on words abt how sick our community is for not pushing for universal healthcare as most other countries in the free world and our govt for the same reasons. i defly want to see this, but i am a michael moore fan.
