My main complaint about this film is that it's emotionally manipulative. It features overuse of melodramatic music, and this frankly comes off as disrespectful to the interview subjects, framing their lives as an epic tragedy when many of them don't seem to see it that way. Conversely, there's the overuse of optimistic classical music when showing something the filmmaker views as a positive, like tomato or wheat farmers. Overall the film feels really hamfisted as a result. It's a a shame, because there's some awesome documentary footage here. The "beef" segment is surprisingly the best executed and least sensationalized.
