Critic Reviews for Code Black
Like most documentary makers addressing the health care crisis, McGarry can't begin to get his arms around the whole problem; this works best as a highly subjective account of a small portion of it.
It sticks halos (probably well-deserved) atop the heads of its doctors, it goes for poignant moments without being all that poignant and ends up bemoaning without seriously suggesting any concrete paths to improvement.
A must-see for anyone concerned about the state of health care in this country. Which should be all of us.
"Code Black" shows the passion, frustration, and skill of those who work to heal despite the system, but it remains in the dark about why that system is broken and how it can be fixed.
The film refuses polemic, grants access, and mostly steers clear of the heartstrings in its effort to humanize those on both sides of the institutional front line.
"Code Black" presents itself as a demonstration of the current crisis in health care, and it's hard to watch without becoming enraged.
