DVD Giveaway: Food, Inc.

Erin Zimmer Closed

[foodincmovie.com] I didn't jump to see Food, Inc. in theaters. Maybe it was a fear of feeling too guilty to ever eat a questionably-sourced steak again. Or a depression induced by montages of baby chick fluffballs crammed on a conveyor belt. But once it was available on DVD in November, I gave in—and was happy I did. The film points fingers at the large agra-corporations monopolizing America's food supply, but does so in an informative, and not super-nauseating way.

Pointing fingers squarely at corporations driven by profit motive rather than product quality or consumer health, along with the government agencies that allow them to do so, Food, Inc. finds plenty of villains to tackle, blaming them for obesity, illness...

New Food Documentary, Food Inc.

Caitlin Kenney 6 comments

The buzz at the Toronto Film Festival this month was all about food. The new documentary, "Food Inc.," premiered at the festival to rave reviews. Entertainment Weekly called it "an important movie, one that nourishes your knowledge of how the world works," the Los Angeles Times labeled it "a riveting cautionary tale," and Variety says it's "a civilized horror movie for the socially conscious, the nutritionally curious and the hungry." The documentary from the producers of an "Inconvenient Truth," is all about the "highly mechanized underbelly" of the nation’s food industry. It includes graphic footage of poultry sheds and meat packing plants (some of it shot in secret) and appearances by familiar foodie faces Eric Schlosser and Michael Pollan. The... More
