The Deadly Downside To Being Thin, Thinner, Thinnest
3 June 2015 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

In the USA, today, it is estimated that there are close to 5 million adults (most of them young and most of them females) who are dealing, in one way or another, with a serious eating disorder, particularly that of anorexia. It is also noted that (due to this illness) many have literally starved themselves to death.

If you happen to be a hearty eater and have no problem about putting on a few extra pounds, then you may find it somewhat difficult to relate to the eating disorders that plague these women (whose ages ranged from 15 to 30) in this documentary. But, all the same, these eating disorders are very real and clearly pose a threat to the health (both physical and mental) of many, many people, the world over.

Personally, I found "Thin" to be such a depressing experience as I watched these women face their eating disorders on a day-to-day basis that, before long, I began to feel somewhat uncomfortable about being witness to their distress, their frustrations and their tears.

Please, don't get me wrong here - I don't, in any way, belittle or undermine the grave seriousness of eating disorders, but (being an outsider to this dysfunctional behaviour), in the end, I could only rank this documentary with an "average", 2.5-star rating.
