Moore's Sicko gets early Internet leak

16 June 2007 21:12 by Dela
Moore's Sicko gets early Internet leakWe rarely report about early movie leaks on the Internet unless there is some significance to it other than piracy. Examples would be the outrage when Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith leaked early and was a main reason for "Operation D-Elite".

Another example is how rampant piracy of Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 caused news outlets to report about a video of Moore explaining he is happy that his movies, books and TV shows are shared as long as its not for profit, and does not really agree with copyright laws.

However, Fahrenheit 9/11 was being shared heavily on the Internet "after" its theatrical release. This time around, a copy of Moore's highly-anticipated "Sicko" movie is being snatched up by thousands of pirates well ahead of its June 29th release date. What makes this interesting is how Moore's personal views on file sharing and copyright applies to such an early leak.

Of course, this could be exactly what Sicko needs and might not even be accidental. If you have been following the news, you know that the U.S. Government is investigating a trip Moore took to Cuba with workers from the World Trade Center site so they could receive health care they could not get at home. There was speculation that Sicko could have been "impounded" by the federal government due to the Cuba issue - so much so that Moore found it a necessity to stash a copy of the movie in Canada.

Sicko takes a critical look at the U.S. health care system. Moore has been praised by critics (achieving a several-minute-long standing ovation at Cannes), many of whom disliked the political bias in Moore's earlier work.

PR stunt much?
Overlooking the rotting dead horse that likes to be publicly flogged, the money care system thats takes care of you if better the mroe of it you have is like the current tax system its biased on money thos who have it get better deals and care while everyone else has to pay 5 times.

the whole health care system starting with insurance/drug companies and ending with managed health care systems and hospitals need to be destroyed and rebuilt with a bent on coverage and care not profits and people falling threw the cracks..


Ah modern gaming its like modern film only the watering down of fiction and characters is replaced with shallow and watered down mechanics, gimmicks and shiny-er "people".
