‘Food, Inc.’ film looks at corporate impact on what we eat | Daily Dish | Los Angeles Times: “Food writers Eric Schlosser (‘Fast Food Nation’) and Michael Pollan (‘The Omnivore’s Dilemma’) move to the big screen in ‘Food, Inc.,’ a film that looks at what’s happened to the production of food in the last few decades.

Producer-director Robert Kenner’s movie, which had a screening Thursday night at Sony, covers a range of issues, from the effects of corn syrup on health and farming, to the ways animals are raised and killed, food-borne illnesses and the plight of farmers. The filmmakers, as you might guess from this image from the movie, don’t like a lot of what they see.”

(Via Los Angeles Times.)

Food, Inc – here’s another movie to add to your “To Watch List”. Haven’t had a chance to check it out myself so if you’ve seen it, please tell me how it’s like! I’d certainly love to hear your opinion (and maybe it’ll spur me on to watch it sooner)!
