If you can find money to kill people, you can find money to help people

By Edward Copeland

On my film site today, I review Michael Moore's Sicko. Here is an excerpt:

The title of this post comes from Tony Benn, a longtime member of Britain's Labour Party, who discusses the history of his country's National Health Service with Michael Moore in Moore's new documentary about the U.S. health care system, Sicko, which not only proves to be Moore's most solid work since Roger & Me but may be his best documentary ever. Of course, any Moore film isn't a documentary in the strictest definition of the word: Moore's a propagandist and provocateur but, in most cases, he's also right and Sicko may be his most dead-on film in that regard, refusing to point the finger of easy blame at one party or the other and, more importantly, focusing like a laser on the subject at hand.
