Review: Collective

Wow! Just, wow! This documentary from Romania is an edge of your seat political thriller that kept reminding me of Spotlight. It’s a story of corruption and fraud that resulted in thousands of deaths and the intrepid journalists who exposed it. And it all began in 2015 with a tragic fire at a nightclub in Bucharest named Colectiv. 27 people died in the fire, but then victims in hospitals who should have recovered began to die of bacterial infections. People took to the streets to demand answers, and a team of reporters at the Sports Gazette began investigating. It led them to a company that was selling over-diluted disinfectants to hospitals all over the country. And to massive corruption in the Ministry of Health and the entire healthcare system of Romania from top to bottom.
