This is a reprint of my review which
was first published on Three Men on a Blog in September 2011, with a number of minor revisions. My original review can be found here.
Super Size Me (USA, 2004)
Directed by Morgan Spurlock
Starring Morgan Spurlock, Alexandra Jamieson, Daryl Isaacs, Lisa Ganjhu
Cinema is full of food-related scenes which are guaranteed to turn one's stomach. We have La Grande Bouffe, in which rich people eat themselves to death; Peter Greenaway turning cannibalism into an art form with The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover; and the famously gross Mr. Creosote sequence from Monty Python's The Meaning of Life. And then there is Super Size Me, Morgan Spurlock's appropriately queasy debut documentary.
NEXT REVIEW: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
