Do I know something that Glaxo, Lilly and Pfizer don’t know about Sicko…? Not long to wait now!
This from the Times Online:
Harvey Weinstein, the American film mogul, touched down in Cannes yesterday with a crack team of lawyers and PRs briefed to cushion a predicted backlash at SICKO, Michael Moore’s expose of the US healthcare system. The film was financed by the Weinstein Company and is set to screen on Saturday.
Earlier, Weinstein told journalists that the film’s negative had been spirited from the US to prevent government attempts to seize it. “It was like a middle-of-the-night operation from a spy novel, moving your negative to another country,” he said.
Moore’s latest polemic is expected to prove even more controversial than his 2004 Palme d’Or winner Fahrenheit 911.
