  1. afuchs's rating of the film Origins of a Meal

    I don't know if the bafflement of the first third or so was an intended effect, but it drew me in afterwards.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Origins of a Meal

    Le réalisateur et sa compagne mangent, quand vient l'idée à Luc Moullet de s'interroger sur l'origine des aliments qu'il ingurgite et d'enquêter en remontant la chaîne de la consommation à la production depuis son épicier jusqu'aux producteurs de tomme, de banane et d'oeufs ..... Edifiant !

  3. SALESK's rating of the film Origins of a Meal

    Prescient precursor to the recent local food movement of liberal social conscience. Runs into the same problems every affluent first world white person does when confronting their own inescapably oppressive capitalism, but as a documentary it's exhaustively well-researched, thorough, thoughtful, well-shot and edited with attentive precision. Moullet's humor a welcome balance to the bleak realities of labor/capital.
