Where is Our Soul, Asks Michael Moore

After his stunning indictment of Bushs Iraq War with his Farenheit 9/11, Hollywood director Michael Moore is making his countrys ruling elite squirm with his Sicko .

The movie, which has taken Cannes by storm, portrays a country where the government is more interested in personal profit and protecting big business than caring for its citizens, many of whom cannot afford health insurance.

"SiCKO" uses humor and tragic personal stories to get the point across, and had a packed audience variously laughing and in tears. There was loud applause at the end of the two-hour documentary, which is out of the main Cannes competition.
