Go See Food Inc.

Just watched Food Inc. in a theater less than 3 miles or so from the world headquarters of the multi-national company in the picture below. Interesting there was a cop cruising the end of the exit. The movie will make you think about what you eat, why, where it really comes from, the policies that support it, and who controls it.

It's time for a little blessed unrest.

I personally thought the movie was far too preachy and you get way more out of Pollan's book, The Omnivore's Dilemma; you can also get way more reuse value out of the book. If you keep up with food politics of any kind, food inc preaches to the choir.

But if you are new to food politics and haven't read any Schlosser or Pollan, maybe you are gonna start thinking and choosing differently, after seeing this movie.

That's always true. I myself recommended it to many of my students in clients but, I would not pay to see it again. I also recommend the books as well.
