Documentary
Homemade-looking digital documentary arrives at its Super Size Me-style message by sending two Boston guys to Iowa to learn first-hand what an acre of commercial "industrialized" corn is all about, from planting to fertilizing to harvesting to market to food processing plants and feed lots, where the dirty business takes place. Their conclusions: Corn is ubiquitous and bountiful, makes possible cheap food for Americans, and is killing us. If you thought corn-fed ground beef ("fat disguised as meat") was bad, consider high fructose corn syrup, the inescapable, nutritionally worthless "raw material for an overweight society" that dominates every grocery in the land. This entertaining, depressing eye-opener is directed by Aaron Woolf, featuring Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis as the two amateur farmers (88 min., 2007).
