Quick and Dirty Movie Review: Food Inc

This image is a still from the movie Food Inc of a chicken house where chickens are mass produced.

After much anticipation, the local video store finally had an available copy of the DVD, Food Inc. This breakthrough eye opener will definitely make any consumer think twice about what foods we put into our bodies and the mouths of our loved ones.

Initially I was afraid that the movie would be nothing more than a recap of the DVD, The Future of Food. However, despite the little bit of parallel information provided, Food Inc. certainly provides a large amount of fresh information and relevant interviews. Food Inc. does not just expose the GMO controversy surrounding Monsanto but also talks about the food industry as a whole, from production to consumption. Food Inc is a must see movie for any consumer who is concerned with how our food is produced and processed. Food Inc will raise the question “Where does my food come from?”

This movie sure does raise awareness about food. Fortunately, my AP Human Geography teacher understands that and showed the film to his classes. It raised a lot of questions (I hope!) in people's minds. We had a brief class discussion about issues with industrialized agriculture that made me really glad that my teacher exposed us to it.

It sure does. If you like this you should seek out others all though I have to warn you the more movies on this subject you watch the more freaked out you'll be. One I have been wanting to watch is called "King Corn". It is a documentary about two guys who raise one acre of GMO corn and try to follow it through our food system.
