REVIEWS

"Food, Inc. does for the supermarket what 'Jaws' did for the beach."

- Variety


"Food, Inc. is more than a terrific movie – it's an important movie."

-Entertainment Weekly


"Suffice it to say, after the film's disturbing glimpses inside the meat industry, along with its blunt indictment of fast food giants, you'll think twice before eating just about anything nonorganic."

-Los Angeles Times
