Sort of feels like it's erected solely on paranoia, but still, a, for the most part, factual look on the food industry itself. I just don't really find it wise to freak out about the whole ordeal, but then provide no insight on what you could do to stop it. Also, how will people who live on minimum wage afford organic foods this film so heavily praises? Liked the overall movie, but it fell short in explanations.
While the tales of Monsanto and the ability to now patent any food that is genetically modified were a jolt to my complacency, I found the most horrific sections were those that dealt directly with the slaughter of animals. I wish I had the courage and where-with-all to finally go vegan, or at least lacto-vegatarian.
it's not that i didn't know the basics of the food industry before but i guess in my idealism, i didn't realize to what extent all of the lack of integrity and authenticity it caused on almost every type of food. i can't believe the injustice done to producers who want to grow food the right way and to the consumers who are made victims, especially kevin. exceptional film.
“A culture that just views a pig as a pile of protoplasmic, inanimate structure to be manipulated by whatever creative design the human can foist on that critter will probably view individuals within its community and other cultures within the community of nations with the same type of disdain and disrespect and controlling-type mentality.”
This documentary about the industrial food production is going scare the hell out of you and make you feel like becoming a vegetarian or a vegan on an organic diet. It clearly shows how it has lost any sense of humanity by solely focusing on profit.
