Documentary detailing the many ways that the U.S. is manipulated and exploited by their food industry.
To its credit, Food, Inc. chooses not to hit its audience over the head with a litany of ghoulish facts and figures. Instead, with the help of Fast Food Nation author Eric Schlosser, it unearths a country unwittingly in thrall to corporate machinations, horrific, near illegal farming practices and legislation that is slowly squeezing the independent farmer and consumers to death.
Compelling, entertaining and illuminating documentary which makes you think twice, and then a few more times, about eating anything at all in U.S.
