There's no escaping the fact that the sheer profusion of similarly-themed efforts in recent years reduces their individual impact.

The film is surprisingly optimistic, arguing that there are genuine, practical answers to many of the problems afflicting the system, and some are already being adopted.

Arranged in a handful of clear, concise chapters, "Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare" turns an unwieldy, Medusa-headed topic into a convincingly humane argument for change.

Cogent, convincing, determinedly non-ideological, "Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare" tells us that everything we think we know about that incendiary topic might be wrong. And it offers us a way out of the morass.

The first hospital visit for many sick Americans is to an emergency room, the most expensive and hurried care available.

Like a doctor's carefully structured analysis of a patient's condition, the film breaks down its massive subject into manageable, clear, but not simplified parts.
