Health care doc 'Escape Fire' offers diagnoses, prescriptions ★★★
Likened to a raging forest inferno by the talented nonfiction team of Matthew Heineman and Susan Froemke, the American health care system is diagnosed up one side and down the other in the highly instructional "Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare." Lacking the outrage and wit of Michael Moore's "Sicko," which dealt with the different matter of health insurance, this documentary is stronger on finding viable solutions.
