Super Size Me (2004, USA) C-104m. *** D: Morgan Spurlock. Naive experiment becomes starting point for interesting examination of America's eating habits, as every-day guy Spurlock decides to live off McDonald's food (and nothing but) for a period of 30 days. Three doctors, his girlfriend and himself comment on the truly alarming changes in his body (and mind). Throughout we are told some unsettling facts about what and how we eat. A Michael Moore-like attack on the fast-food industry and its customers that includes some bitter truths. Interestingly, McDonald's dropped the Super Size Me option on its meals soon after film premiered.
