Want a surefire way to bum yourself out on New Year’s Eve? Watch Food Inc.
I’ve scaled back the number of mind-numbingly depressing documentaries I’ve watched in the past few years. Too many of them tread the same territory, preach to the choir, and fall far short of informing the broader public of the issues at hand. Food Inc. isn’t one of them.
This is a great documentary for anyone who wants to get a basic understanding of what’s happening in American food policy. Let me put it this way: if Upton Sinclair wouldn’t have words to describe the state of the food industry. It’s that bad. I definitely recommend this flick. It’ll make you think twice about how and what you eat.
