Aro Recommended Super Size Me

 

USA 2003, 96 minutes
Dir. Morgan Spurlock
Rating: [M]
Genres: Documentary / Sociology

Topics: Bad Taste.

 

Aroview: Entertaining expose of the evils of 'fast food', in which the filmmaker uses himself as a human guinea-pig by embarking on a 30-day, all-McDonalds diet (with rather serious digestive consequences).

Using this devastatingly straightforward concept and a funky, fast-paced style dir. Spurlock finds the perfect means to launch a convincing attack on the practices, ethics and products of the fast food industry. Using very much the same recipe book as Michael Moore (BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE), this combines voiceover narrative with an array of expert witnesses for both the prosecution and defence. It is most distinguished however by the stark on-camera evidence of the dir.'s rapidly deteriorating health and dramatic mood swings, as he battles through his self-imposed ordeal.
