Food, Inc. first three minutes online
The first three minutes of Food, Inc. have arrived online and they are looking rather appetising, as well as surprisingly compelling. Although to be fair modern documentaries are getting a great chunk of the limelight and really do know how to engage an audience.
There's also the trailer, which I don't think I've featured so far, and together they paint a compelling portrait of a film which could do a lot of good.
Food, Inc. is a documentary that looks at America's food industry and how it is controlled and operated by the larger corporates, and how manufactured food may not be that good for you, the produce, the producer, or the country, and that through sheer buying power of the consumer all that can be changed.
The opening three minutes paint a powerful picture, and I saw that first before I saw the trailer, so I'm going to suggest to you that you do them in the same order. The trailer is good, but I prefer the opening three minutes as it has much more power to it.
Now you've seen that, here's the trailer.
What do you think? I'm really impressed, and I had previously thought that the film was going to be covering ground that was just wholly obvious to me. While I think that there are moments of that, the way that the film portrays it is superbly done, well at least in the opening minutes anyway.
