Bloodless Coup went to the movies last night to check out Super Size Me. It is well worth a look. As far as tone and structure, it's like a considerably more polite Michael Moore movie. While it's quite amusing, it is also shocking, and I don't use that word lightly. The doctors employed by Morgan Spurlock, the movie's star and creator, were stunned at the effects eating nothing but McDonald's food had on his body. You will be too. There comes a point when you really do begin to wonder if he's going to live through the experiment.
Is this a political/message movie? Well sure, but it's probably not all that controversial: America, eat less junk food, exercise, and please, please, please get sugary, processed crap out of our nation's schools.Posted by armand at July 20, 2004 03:39 PM | TrackBack | Posted to Movies
