There's no escaping the fact that the sheer profusion of similarly-themed efforts in recent years reduces their individual impact.
Matthew Heineman and Susan Froemke's sobering, often infuriating documentary about medical care in 21st-century America.
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.
This is the movie equivalent of watching someone walk on hot coals, but for 98 minutes.
There's no question the American health care system is broken. But it's not for the reasons directors Susan Froemke and Matthew Heineman posit.
A more sweeping look at the assumptions behind American healthcare
Suffers from some jumbled editing, but has the benefit of enormously sympathetic subjects, and rather persuasively suggests a collective societal myopia on the subject of health care.
Dry doings but certainly important and thorough.
It's enough to raise one's blood pressure, if it weren't elevated already.
"Escape Fire" will be a learning and thought provoking experience.
