Equal parts laugh-riot and call to arms.

In trying to decipher how Michael Moore has achieved his widespread popularity in the face of a somewhat cavalier attitude toward factual precision, there's no underestimating his savvy choice of targets.

Though his politics are unmistakably left, the documentarian's targets are almost exclusively the powerful and his work is fueled by optimism rather than cynicism.

More humble than Fahrenheit 9/11 and as enthralling as Bowling For Columbine, Sicko is another target hit square on the nose for America's premier documentalist.

Soon we realize that Sicko hinges not on what Michael Moore is uncovering, but on what he's hiding. This is a real shame as he's a talented documentary maker.

While much of Sicko is certainly propaganda, that should not deter anyone from seeing it or giving some credence to what Moore is saying, because what he is talking about is very real and very important.

Saddening while it still bristles with satire, "Sicko" does dodge some of the larger political questions about healthcare reform. Plus, the Cuba stunt mars what is, up to that point, a relatively stunt-free film.

Moore depoliticizes the health care crisis by humanizing it, and drops the polemic in favor of a plea: for us to care about each other a little more.

By now, it should only matter that Moore has been right about every social ill he's addressed.

Laughs are thin on the ground, but this is a must-see by a film-maker at the height of his powers.

Michael Moore takes on the US health care system. His in your face style may annoy some people, but he lets you know he's in favor of socialized medicine and, to be fair, he wisely presents AMA spokespersons, doctors and others who claim put health care i

Maybe the film will cause a momentary stir and then fade, like Moore's other efforts, because the sickness is not just in the health-care industry but in the system as a whole.

There's plenty of grandstanding, most of it very funny. And in this instance, all that sizzle is selling the steak.

The priorities are humane by default, and he's strong on testimony from people who've been chewed up and spit out by our system -- and not just patients.

For the first time, the targets of Moore's film need not fear the bearded, heavyset man; instead they should be worried about his audience.

Moore's mere presence becomes politicizing, but this film attempts to make people realize the health of people in this country should have nothing to do with income and politics.
