Food, Inc. **** ( 4 STARS) Documentary maker Robert Kenner rarely sacrifices humanity for horror or humor for sarcasm in this vivid, even playful expose of American supermarket food and fast food. He stimulates our eyes and engages our sympathies as agricultural heroes as well as journalists Eric Schlosser and Michael Pollan lay out the reasons for buying healthy food. A perfect dinner-date movie - if you eat at a place that uses local and organic food.
