I saw Sicko last night. This film is somewhere between Upton Siclair's The Jungle and Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin. It will have a radicalizing effect upon all those who see it.
The film's most devastating moments come not with the American health care horror stories we have all heard about, but from the vision of quality health care for all offered by the Canadian, French, English, and even Cuban systems.
