Super Size Me

  • More addictive than cigarettes!

The first of this year's three big documentaries (the other two being Touching the Void and Fahrenheit 9/11) takes a look at America's fast food industry, in particular, McDonalds. In a unique experiment, the presenter sets himself the goal of living on only McDonalds foods for 30 days, under strict medical supervision. He is checked and tested at regular intervals as he travels around eating and interviewing customers. After just a few weeks, his health deteriorates to such an extent that the doctors warn him to quit or risk permanent damage to his liver.

Ian Douglas: A difficult movie to rate... the subject matter and conclusions reached are very important, meriting at least 4 stars. However the film as film does become a little repetitive and drag a bit in the middle, deserving only 3 stars. So I split the difference and gave it 3½ stars. Well worth seeing, frequently funny, and you'll never look at fast food the same way again.
