No Shouts No Calls

For the record, I don't like Michael Moore. But I do think his new film, Sicko, is definitely worth checking out, even if you have to make the slow Q train commute to Prospect Heights to watch the pirated version on a laptop while crammed onto a couch with three other people. A trip like that is worth it because his new film isn't as polarizing as the others; it's more cut and dry, less looped out liberal. The American healthcare system actually hires people whose sole purpose is to screw you over. Everybody can relate to this film because everybody knows somebody who's been there. Of course there's more to it than that, just as his argument, like everything else he touches, has ample room for flaws (would he choose to have a tumor treated in Canada or Cuba instead of the US? nope.). I'm just saying that it's easier to watch than his other films, no matter how many people are crammed onto the couch alongside you.
