    I completely disagree with most of the critics that believe that this documentary is compelling or remotely deep in any sense. I felt that the director dedicated 90 minutes to create a "yearbook" of his residence and his friends. The film was the cinematographic equivalent to the physician's facebook newsfeed. There was little critical social commentary, and when there was, it sounded old, repetitive, empty. Too much idealization of the ER physician. I would like to see a follow up in 5 years and see how many of these altruist doctors are actually doing any altruistic work. Expand

    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.

    For the most part, Code Black is a riveting document despite its tendency to jackrabbit around in its themes and personalities.

    McGarry, with this slick, invigorating film, whose action is set to a pulsating James Lavino musical score, has broadened a national debate that anti-healthcare reform folks have narrowed via the courts and political demonization.
