It's not as entertaining as Michael Moore's film on the health care system. Yet this is a compelling, frightening film about a real disease that many in the medical business would like to sweep under the carpet.

I was very surprised to see this get less than amazing reviews from professional critics. Please read their arguments. The subject-matter remains crushingly important, and the story and controversy-uncovering is competent and inspiring. ToI was very surprised to see this get less than amazing reviews from professional critics. Please read their arguments. The subject-matter remains crushingly important, and the story and controversy-uncovering is competent and inspiring. To me, this seemed like one of the most important American documentaries of the last century, probably in the top 5. Like, it really should be on the evening news. But then I saw the professional critics' scores and read that their main point of criticism is the movie's style. Its style? Doesn't the subject matter and the substance weigh more in their judgement than the style? I had hoped so! Please help this movie make its impact. Its importance should be recognized widely. Expand
