Michael Moore United States, 2007

Mugino's rating of the film Sicko

Moore's deep compassion for people is laudable and engaging, but it drowns out and ignores any responsibility to research and present facts. That he seems not to care about being a documentarian makes it all the more infuriating. His over-simplification of the health care system is only going to sway the most gullible and ill-informed. Whether by accident or design, he is as much a propagandist as his enemies.
