ESCAPE FIRE: THE FIGHT TO RESCUE AMERICAN HEALTHCARE

(Comcast Movie Collections: Just In) A righteous health care documentary with real filmmaking gets you something like Michael Moore’s “Sicko.” Righteousness with none of that lands an audience in the monotonous murk of the average polemic, which seeks change by simultaneously scaring you and poking you in the chest. It’s not fun, which is fine. But it’s not rousing, either. (98 min., PG-13)

GHOST DAD ½

(Comcast Free Movies) Bill Cosby recovers from the debacle of “Leonard Part 6” in a comedy about a workaholic dad who turns into ectoplasm when his taxi goes off a bridge, then desperately tries to go back and pay more attention to his kids. Imagine a less mellow version of TV’s Doc Huxtable walking through walls, and you’ll have the idea. (PG; runs through Nov. 29)

MISSISSIPPI BURNING

Continue reading below

(Encore on Comcast) Flawed, but powerful film about the murder of three civil rights workers in Mississippi in 1964, with Oscar-caliber performances by Gene Hackman as a rural Southern sheriff turned FBI man and Frances McDormand as the local woman he leans on in order to crack the case. (R; runs through Dec. 13)
