As usual Michael Moore parades a series of on-camera publicity stunts to make a larger point: universal health care in the US is possible, desirable, and even all-American. Health care insurance may seem like the least likely fun subject to have to sit through, but as usual Moore is so hugely entertaining, you won’t regret it. I have no idea if this film has changed anyone else’s mind, but it moved mine a bit. It doesn’t take much to blow holes in the current system. If you keep in mind that Moore makes agitprop films — films that are not meant to be evenhanded and balanced — then his jeremiads against the failures of this large health system make great watching. It is theater in the best sense of the word.
