Moore Film to Target Healthcare Industry
Monday, December 27, 2004
Michael Moore’s new film is already causing controversy. The film is titled “Sickos” and is about the American Healthcare system. At least six major drug companies have sent some form of warning to employees about possible ambush interviews from Moore. While Moore has done pieces on the Healthcare Industry on television, this is the first time he has attempted a full length feature on this subject.
Michael Moore’s new film is already causing controversy.
Refusing to stoop to Moore’s level, pharmaceutical companies have responded to the expected criticism of their products and tactics with criticism of Moore’s products and tactics. "Moore's past work has been marked by negativity, so we can only assume it won't be a fair and balanced portrayal”, said Rachel Bloom, executive director of corporate communications for AstraZeneca. She went on to say Moore’s movies “resemble docudramas more than documentaries."
Moore’s movies “resemble docudramas more than documentaries."
Like most movies about the healthcare industry, Moore’s movie is expected to feature 3 young girls, candy stripers or possibly student nurses, on a journey of erotic experimentation while trying to snag a handsome young doctor as a husband. This may even have been foreshadowed in Moore’s film “Canadian Bacon” which featured young Canadian candy stripers experimenting with light bondage.
Moore was questioned at his Michigan home about whether he was hiring real doctors to help these young girls experiment with their sexuality. "I didn't need to,” said Moore. “So many doctors have offered to help.” Moore decided to make a movie about the sex lives of medical professionals because it is a notion that the average American can relate to. "Being screwed by your HMO,” Moore said, “is the shared American experience.”
Let Moore make his next movie and try to make it look legit. He already screwed up with EatAPie 9/11.
