Enlightening and Revealing, very useful perspective for change
26 April 2008 | by pchelp-2See all my reviews

Often beautiful cinematography. Quite stark at times, but necessarily so. This is a very valuable film from an point of view not often heard.

This is a close look at the current production methods for what we eat. It reveals much that is hidden from the consumer. It shows factory farming up close, the source of most of our supermarket offerings.

All of the solutions to the issues raised in the film are not presented, but the concerns and need to come up with solutions is persuasive. Clearly, considerable effort is required, but there are many ways to get there and they all start with opening the eyes to that is going on.

The film illustrates how the overriding pursuit of profit affects the nutritional values, chemical and genetic hazards in our food.

A good starter on intelligently approaching food. I suggest watching it to figure out what to do next.
