    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.
