Wiseman's fourth film, one of his celebrated vérité projects on American institutions: a series of despairing (or blackly comic) vignettes from the low priority end of the health/wealth equation, shot with comprehensive austerity at Metropolitan Hospital in New York City. As with most of Wiseman's films of this period, a marshalling of evidence that's angrily illustrative of symptoms of the 'system's' malaise, but mute with regard to analysis of their cause or their cure.
