Michael Moore is going around bragging that his next documentary, Sicko -- for which he has yet to shoot a frame of film (or has he joined the George Lucas revolution?) -- already has American HMOs "freaked out". He claims the health care companies are scared to the point where they're actually crafting company policy in the event that Moore approach their employees with his ever-invasive camera. "At this point, we haven't shot anything yet and they're totally discombobulated," Moore boasted from the Traverse City Film Festival, which he helped organize, and which is screening mostly-classic, all non-political films. Not that he has any shame over being a political
bully dilettante filmmaker: "When in this great democracy did 'political' become a dirty word?"
