Dead grub entree, anyone?
9 April 2019 | by maccas-56367See all my reviews

I once ate a potato chip off the ground that was swarming black with ants - I needed beer money. The guys in Bugs have somehow made an entire documentary around this concept, while also trying to change the world by getting us all eating bugs.

Some aspects of this documentary were interesting. I oddly became a little hungry. It took on an almost travelogue aspect at times and it was cool to see them out among native people in far flung parts of the world - eating insects. Some of it was a little stomach churning, and repetitive, but strangely intriguing.

For a short documentary it somehow managed to be a bit disjointed. It also got overwhelmingly preachy towards the end, with it becoming more about the guys and their project than simply developing attractive menus from insects. Could have perhaps been better if the guys' egos didn't require them being at the center of the film so often.
