Critical Care 1997

*Terrific film lampooning today's medical/legal maze*

This film should be required viewing for all physicians, insurance execs and lawyers. The story is a dark comedy which looks at the twisted mess that is our modern healthcare system.
James Spader is perfect as a cynical medical resident who learns the hard way about the realities of dealing with a patient's family, lawyers and the insurance games played by hospital administrators.
As a family practice physician I can say that the plot of this film rings true on many levels. The stress of being a resident, the battle between family members, insurance companies and hospital administrators and the conflicting expectations of all involved.
Highly recommended, but it can be a bit depressing at times for the very sensitive ones.

My Score 7/10.
