Fun whilst delivering something informative too. Those who claim this all is old news, that may be so, but education comes through repetition and dedication. This just might be the reminder anyone could do with. Therefor delivering it in a way that is pleasurable to watch, relatable and done in personal way is not a bad thing at all.
It makes sense to make this film and to prove a point about the crooked motivations of the food industry. But in order for the story to stick it would probably need a more hard-boiled narrator. Damon Gameau just keeps stirring the same soup and of course sugar is a killer but unfortunately this film is not. For a man dying to spend time with his pregnant girlfriend - Gameau's game is lacking in any kind of urgency.
Of course he would be sick after eating that amount of sugar, but it still was interesting to see HOW sick a person can get after eating so called "healthy" processed foods for 60 days (and NOT "sugary" stuff like chocolate etc). I knew that before, yes. But many ppl live this way and should watch this doc. It is shot in a very entertaining way too!
