Where your steaks come from............
21 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw this on PBS a long time ago. This B&W film is very long and tough to look at. If life in all of its grittiness is what interests you, this slice of it will be worth seeing. If you are the type of person who wants to know something as basic as how the food you eat is processed for you, and if you are not the squeamish type who blanches at the sight of blood, even if in B&W, than you will find this a truly interesting and informing film. Starting at the farm/ranch in the darkness of early morning where the cattle are loaded onto trucks, and ending at the completion of the workday at the slaughter house, it carries the viewer through all phases of the production process. Yes, it isn't pretty, but it is real, very real. The use of a Judas goat to lead the cattle up the ramp to the chute where they are quickly dispatched with a stun gun to their foreheads is a never to be forgotten piece of film work.
