Synapsis

This movie is about the food industry and how they make the food. You see the modern farms and farmers and how the companies control them. You also see how they control smaller companies and farmers that are not a part of them.

My opinion

I thought this movie was very informative and I learned a lot from it. I learned just where my food actually comes from. I wonder how much these companies make exactly a year. I liked the movie and agreed with the narrator. It was very intriguing and I did not do further research after seeing it.

Rating

I give this movie 4/5 hamburgers

Quote

"There are no seasons in the American supermarket. Now there are tomatoes all year round, grown halfway around the world, picked when it was green, and ripened with ethylene gas. Although it looks like a tomato, it's kind of a notional tomato. I mean, it's the idea of a tomato." -Michael Pollan

This quote shows how they are producing food, but not naturally and says how they are.

When will we decide to change how are food is made?
