similar to food inc.
16 July 2009 | by (davis, california) – See all my reviews

as good as food inc. and a good companion piece. this one talks more about the culture that has led to the obesity epidemic, though it does address some of the same issues as food inc and future of food. this has better guests overall than either of those two films including the obligatory organic farmer and Michael pollan (author of the omnivore's dilemma who has been doing the rounds lately) as well as Ralph Nader, Neil labute, teachers, and other food experts. all these documentaries are at their core the same: they present the problem and trot out many of the same guest and then provide some examples of solutions. formulaic, but this one is pretty good. B+.
