Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: How miserable does your day have to be to transform the breeze from a pesticide spray into a blessing?
Fresh: Americans remain all too disconnected from those who toil in grim living and working conditions to supply their food. Maybe it's about time to worry.
Fresh: At the end of the day, Rawal is trying to make a point more than telling a story. It's hard to blame him, because we've avoided this shameful problem for too long, and for a change, someone's actually offering a reasonable solution.
Fresh: Rawal takes a compassionate but dry approach that suggests he's focused on making a call to arms, not art.
Best food movie since food Inc.
Food chains was hands down the best food movie I have seen since food Inc. It was beautiful, exciting, had great music which I love like from Macklemore even, and made me feel like my voice in the system matters. I will never look at food or farmworkers the same way again. Thank you to the brilliant and wonderful team that brought us this movie. This movie might not change your life, but it will change the way you eat and make you a better person.
Here’s a question.
What about all of the jobless Americans who live in poverty? What about all of the Americans who have jobs and still live in poverty? Why are we more focused on immigrants when we should be focused on our own countrymen? I rate this movie low, not because it doesn’t support a good cause, but because there is a generally more important cause that we as Americans need to look at.
If you’re human, it will move you.
Extremely well-shot. Delivers a clear, easy-to-follow storyline. This doc keeps your attention through its entirety. If you're human, it will move you.
The film exposes an issue that is real here in the US. I didn't notice any point where it claimed that this problem is more serious than another, or even that it’s more serious than in any other issue in the country; it simply exposes what’s happening on a topic that deserves attention. And you know what? Love it or hate it, the film is getting America talking.. Food Chains is serving its purpose even through nay-sayers’ comments. Those who get angry and proclaim the film is biased or ignorant simply fuel the discussion's fire with such commentary. Food Chains is thanking you, I’m sure.
