Amazingly Realistic
16 October 2005 | by (Bangkok, Thailand) – See all my reviews

Now, you have never faced a real situation of doctors murdering their patients for money. If you faced that situation, the movie portrayed is quite realistic. No one wants to rock the boat and everyone pretend to be stupid. I have seen it all the time. Yes, they look like "twits", but don't real life when you found somethings wrong, don't they all look like "twits"? While the movie is not on par with blockbuster or something as entertaining, I have had a bad luck to fight with corruption that is in similar scale to the ones in the movie, but the reality is much much worse, the ending is not as nice and neat like the movie, and the general apathy of people is quite ridiculously high. Collecting monthly and weekly salaries and making a living without rocking the system bad or good is usually their motto.

No doctor will admit that they kill their patients or make the patients conditions worse so they can collect more money by getting their patients to stay in the hospitals much longer or subjected to a more drastic measures when they could prevented the crisis by giving something as simple as an pill. You see many hospitals give doctors 50% of the cut from the money they collect from their patients. It makes for much longer hospital stays if they have their insurance covered. And believed it or not if the insurance is canceled, they will kick you out in a second's notice.

I have seen this issue hundreds of time and people just don't get it. Why doctors do what they do, is what I have seen in real life so many times and when you go through the bureaucrat you will see some of the worse treatment of denial ever.

It is only when the majority public knows about it that and facts are all out that they might look into the issue. This is the general state of what corruption is really like, just as the way the movie is exactly portrayed.

Mine you the movie is not entertainment, but in real life this is one of those movies I have to show children what bureaucrats, and doctors who kill their patient (happens much more than you think) is like.

If only people can see through it in real life just like the movie, it would be great, but people just can't see through this analogy. For this, it is the best Linda Blair movie I ever seen. Only Exorcist ranks second on the "reality" ratings. I can be quite vocal about this issue because three of my relatives are doctors and three more of my relatives are nurses. So this is straight from the horse's mouth!
