I think I’d feel better about this film if the film got into more detail about all foods and not just the meat industry. I don’t think it was the intent of the filmmakers to paint a sympathetic picture of vegetarians or anything like that, as they show chickens being slaughtered without judgement or any question of morality, but I have to say that the emphasis on impure meat was heavy handed and without a balance on the rest of our diet as a culture. While presenting many valid facts, I have to say that it didn’t move me like a documentary should. The story of the young boy who died of e-coli poisoning was heartbreaking and painful to watch, genuinely, but beyond that one isolated case I didn’t find much to get behind with this film. Hell, even Eric Schlosser, the man in the film who seems to be most against the secretive processing of meat, admits his favorite meal is the hamburger and french fries. He, maybe unknowingly, becomes a contradiction of the message he’s trying to preach to his audience with a single action, and it’s that kind of hypocritical nature that discredits a lot of the film.
