Storyline

Narrator Cori Brackett had a strange cause-and-effect experience with the diet cokes she was drinking and quickly found herself disabled and diagnosed with MS. Slowly able to walk and speak again, she believes her illness is linked to aspartame. She is a co-owner of a video/film production company. After 7000 miles, and 25 hours of footage, "Sweet Misery" will reveal one of the most pervasive, insidious forms of corporate negligence since tobacco. Written by J.T. Waldron

Provocative, yet low production value
30 November 2005 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

The issues raised in this documentary are scary and enlightening. Although I was not 100% convinced that many of those interviewed in the film were experts in their field, there was more than enough convincing evidence shown in the film to damn aspartame as a sweetener. Purely from the perspective of content, the documentary was successful. However, much of the film was poorly edited. The narrative style was choppy as Ms. Brackett strongly took the reins in some sections and seemed to disappear entirely in others. In addition, given the quality of the graphics throughout the film, a better job with the occasional green-screening would have been nice. Overall, this documentary is worth the time and the content is easily interesting enough to distract from the film's faults. I highly recommend this film who includes aspartame in their diet.
