Storyline

Ken is a man that won't change his ways. Addicted to food, and bad health in general, he is headed on a one way path to an early grave. Despite help from his friends, he does what he wants, until a chance encounter that might just give him the motivation he needs. Fat is a funny, and dramatic look at food addiction. It is an unflinching story based on Mark Phinney's own experiences and writings on the subject. Written by Mark Phinney

Beautiful Film
7 November 2018 | by jaybeebradSee all my reviews

Such a well acted, well written film about a man whose self-loathing around his body causes a domino effect in the rest of his life.

I am honestly writing this review to combat what was posted in someone else's super ignorant, bigoted review where they felt the need to state, quote, "WARNING: This film contains graphic depictions of obese male nudity."

First, this is false. Unless the cut of the film presented at film festivals was very different from what is available on Amazon, there is literally no nudity in the film. The main actor, Mel Rodriguez, is shown at one brief moment sitting on a toilet with no clothes on, but we don't see his genitals at all. In other moments he is shown in quite conservative boxer shorts, and that is the extent of the alleged "nudity".

One assumes this person thinks that the idea of seeing a fat person undressed is so horrifying to the general public that they need to give them a WARNING as to the potential awfulness of it, which is deeply offensive and counter-intuitive to the film's message.
