  • Movies like Food Inc or Fathead...more?



    I just watched these movies last night and wow...especially Food Inc. Definitely an eye opener.


    Does anyone know of movies that are similar to these? ie...food documentaries?

    I grok, therefore I am.

    Zombieland. On a serious note I've seen Fast Food nation, which was "OK". (Zombieland was really good.)

      1) Super Size Me was incredible. Even though I don't eat fast food it was mind blowing to me. I highly recommend.


      2) King Corn - also great. I don't eat processed food but still it's amazing to see how all this horrendous stuff works

            This is not Food related but they touch upon food for a few minutes, but a great movie nevertheless - The Corporation.

              "Botany of Desire" was put into a short on Nova? or some PBS show. Michael Pollan's book. I second "King Corn"


              Oh, and right now NOVA is running 2 more installments of "Becoming Human", a show on our evolution.

                Yes to "The Corporation". I liked Supersize Me. The scene where he gets sick is poignant. At the risk of being scolded...Capitalism: A Love Story.

                    I haven't seen it but "Future of Food" is a recommendation that came with Food Inc on Amazon - it's about GMO food, conventional farming and their sustainable alternatives.


                    ETA: Oops, looks like Ecala already recommended the movie.

                      I want to see food inc but my wife would probably never eat again if she saw it.

                        "King Corn" was good, but don't bother watching it if you've already seen "Food, Inc.". The latter is more comprehensive and entertaining.

                          ON NOVA right now! is the show "Becoming Human". Catch it if you can. It traces human evolution.
