(Updated 5:21PM) I saw Michael Moore‘s Sicko a few weeks ago at one of the test screening things where you fill out the card at the end. I didn’t blog about it, because they would prefer that you didn’t until the movie is out and I can hold up my end of a deal. Well, the movie is not quite out yet, but it hit the internet for a while over the weekend. I had it embedded below courtesy of Google Video, but I had some lunch, ran a few errands and watched the first John From Cincinnati (finally), and it was gone when I came back.
It’s really fucking good, not as political as his others, despite what the advertising wants you to believe. I had one minor problem with it (maybe not so minor, depending on how you look at it, because if I was really a blockhead, that one thing would have negated everything that came before), which I won’t discuss until someone posts a comment and asks me about it.
In the meantime, feel free to watch the video below. It’s from a press conference at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival, where he was promoting Fahrenheit 9/11, and was asked how he feels about it being distributed over file sharing networks without explicit authorization:
