If you've ever been sick, think you might get sick or know someone who has been sick, do something for your mental health and buy a ticket for "Sicko." It's the healthiest movie you'll see all summer.
"Sicko" is a 113-minute documentary about the disaster that is the American health care system. Controversial director Michael Moore breaks down what went wrong and why America ranks so low when it comes to health care for our citizens. The film is insightful, entertaining, heart-breaking and also one of the most important films I've ever seen.
Believe it or not, I did not make enough money acting in the last 12 months to be covered by my union's health plan and therefore I pay for my own health insurance. I recently had knee surgery and even with my coverage I'm still buried in a mountain of medical bills. Because of my experience, I was personally motivated to see "Sicko".
