Super Size Me
First time director Morgan Spurlock takes a look at the subject of obesity in the United States, specifically zeroing in on the business and culture surrounding the nation’s fast-food industry in this 2004 documentary. In addition to studying the marketing of fast food to American children and unsuccessfully attempting to gain an interview with McDonald’s executives, Spurlock attempts to become one of his own subjects by documenting a one month binge during which he survived only on items from the McDonald’s menu, forcing himself to eat three meals a day and try every offering at least once.
All ages encouraged.
