Saw the movie Food, Inc. at the Regency Academy Theaters in Pasadena, my favorite second-run theater where matinee screenings cost $2 and all other shows are $3. For the first time I had to wait before going into the theater, because there was a significant line to get in to the theater, which I presumed was because they were also showing the new Star Trek film (see MadProfessah's review).
Food, Inc. is the most significant documentary that I have seen since two health care documentaries from 2007 called Salud and Michael Moore's Sicko.
Instead of health care, this year's amazing non-fiction film is about another of life's necessities: food.
Directed by Robert Kenner and featuring Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser, two of the most influential talking heads on food issues in the public eye.
There are some hard to watch scenes in Food, Inc. as well as lots of very important information.
This movie will change the way you look at food, which will change the way you live your life. As with all important documentaries (and films, for that matter) the impact of spending time to watch Food, Inc. is felt for much longer durations than then event itself.
Running Time: 1 hour, 34 minutes. MPAA Rating: Rated PG for some thematic material and disturbing images.
OVERALL GRADE: A+.
