About the Movie
"A MUST SEE! 'An Inconvenient Truth' for the healthcare debate" (Anthony Kaufman, The Village Voice). Co-directed by Matthew Heineman and Academy Award®-nominee Susan Froemke (Lalee’s Kin: The Legacy of Cotton), Escape Fire looks at a U.S. healthcare system designed to profit on disease not health, reward quantity over quality, and promote high-tech over high-touch. It interweaves dramatic personal stories with the efforts of leaders battling to transform healthcare at the highest levels of medicine, industry, government, and even the U.S. military.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Arranged in a handful of clear, concise chapters, "Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare" turns an unwieldy, Medusa-headed topic into a convincingly humane argument for change.
Fresh: Like a doctor's carefully structured analysis of a patient's condition, the film breaks down its massive subject into manageable, clear, but not simplified parts.
Fresh: Cogent, convincing, determinedly non-ideological, "Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare" tells us that everything we think we know about that incendiary topic might be wrong. And it offers us a way out of the morass.
Rotten: There's no escaping the fact that the sheer profusion of similarly-themed efforts in recent years reduces their individual impact.
This is a must see for anyone and everyone. Healthcare in America affects everyone and this film gives a raw look at the status at the system of medicine in America. No matter what your opinion is, this is a good source of information.
Why can't I rent this movie? I'd love to see it, but I don't want to own it.
