Supersize Me

File Under: Synopsis & Review

Morgan Spurlock chose to make himself a guinea pig for the sake of a documentary. For 30 days he had the sedentary lifestyle of an average American and he ate at McDonalds every day for 30 days. He would not eat it if it wasn't on the McDonalds menu.

So what happened?

Kidney problems, impotence, depression, and addiction to the food.

Some strange stuff. A really good examination of the Fastfood Industry a la Michael Moore-style. It makes one question what they're putting into their body. The film has been hitting the Film Festival circuit. Both screenings sold-out at the SFIFF, so San Franciscans have been chomping at the bit (pardon the very deliberate pun) to see it.
