I’ve only seen the trailers for Food, Inc., a new documentary exposing America’s food industry, but those alone gave me shivers. The commercial food giants are presented as evil and secretive: “America’s food industry is making a killing,” as staccato violin music pounds in the background. As I’m more a Netflixer than theater-goer, I probably won’t see this for a while but wanted to pass it along as Food, Inc. now plays in selected theaters as it also likely spreads hysteria among supermarket shoppers. The movie seems jam-packed with information on everything you wanted to know (and would prefer not to know) about our food supply. The current problems in our food industry are so complex that I doubt this movie includes all points of view and there’s clearly a political angle, but Food, Inc. remains an important movie to see.
