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 film isn’t out in theaters yet, but it definitely sounds like something to look forward to.
