Reviews:
"[T]he superb FOOD, INC. offers an elegantly constructed and absorbing analysis of the monolithic U.S. food industry." - 06/01/2009 Film Comment


5 stars out of 5 -- "It's a sobering and worthwhile look at an important subject many have not even thought about....FOOD, INC.'s end credit sequence offers numerous ways the consumer can and should make a difference." - 05/26/2009 Box Office


"[A] smart, expertly shot documentary....[The film] gives an eloquent array of writers, activists and farmers time to enlighten us about the perils on our plates, but now without offering hope for a safer future." - 06/12/2009 Los Angeles Times


"[A]n informative, often infuriating activist documentary....You'll shudder, shake and just possibly lose your genetically modified lunch." - 06/12/2009 New York Times


"Kenner takes you through these unsettling stories through a mix of articulate talking heads, cameras peering where Food Inc. doesn't want scrutiny, citizens lobbying their representatives in Congress and entertaining graphics and animation." - 06/12/2009 Hollywood Reporter


"Kenner takes audiences deep into the ugly underbelly of American food production....Its heroes are realists who've found a way to be relatively humane within the system..." - 06/11/2009 A.V. Club


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Kenner keeps his film bouncing with humor, music and graphics....The message he's delivered with the help of nutrition activists, including Eric Schlosser and Michael Pollan is an eye-opener." - 06/25/2009 Rolling Stone


Included in Entertainment Weekly's "The Best Films Of The Year" -- "[A] brilliant documentary about what we think we eat, and about what that food really is." - 12/25/2009 Entertainment Weekly


4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's a chilling portrait of how big agribusiness runs roughshod over animal and worker rights, public safety and toothless regulatory bodies." - 01/25/2009 Total Film


4 stars out of 5 -- "Robert Kenner's exploration of America's food industry is all the more shockingly effective for being so calmly presented." - 02/08/2010 Uncut
