    I was disappointed by this film. While it served as good viewing for people already familiar with Pollan and Schlosserhberg's writing on the subject, it was too disjointed for people new to the concepts to follow. I had hoped that this might have the same impact as Michael Moore's "Sicko" or Al Gore's "Inconvenient Truth." Oh well.

  1. The sheer scale of the movie is mind-blowing--it touches on every aspect of modern life. It's the documentary equivalent of "The Matrix": It shows us how we're living in a simulacrum, fed by machines run by larger machines with names like Monsanto, Perdue, Tyson, and the handful of other corporations that make everything.

    A civilized horror movie for the socially conscious, the nutritionally curious and the hungry.
