Fast Food Nation

The Dark Side of the All-American Meal debut: On November 17th of 2006, the movie Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal made its debut in US theaters. The movie revolves around a fictional chain called Mickey's and describes the way farm animals are raised in today’s modern factory plants.

It includes scenes filmed in a Mexican slaughterplant showing with graphic detail every step from the stunning of the animal until its flesh is processed for food. Rebecca Weiss, writer for The Cornell Daily Sun says, “There are a few scenes of unrelenting carnage, more mercilessly graphic than anything you’ll have ever seen in the theatres. Worse, there’s no way to console yourself afterwards — everything you’ve seen is 100% real and all true to life” … ““The amount of times that innards and giblet are depicted onscreen may convert the most staunch carnivore into a cow-hugging tofu-championing vegetarian, nay, vegan.”
