In my review for Michael Moore’s latest film Sicko, I referenced a segment from Moore’s short lived television show The Awful Truth. The segment featured a father who was being denied an operation by his HMO which could/would save his life. Moore confronted the HMO company Humana with the case, and when they didn’t respond, they held a public funeral for Chris in front of the HMO’s offices. I won’t ruin the end result, but I will say it’s a must watch, one of the best things Moore has ever done. This segment was the origin of the Sicko documentary. One of the /Film readers sent me a link to this segment on YouTube. Check it out after the jump.
