Pay attention: this documentary contains a lot of misinformation. Not everything is wrong, but the data is altered and/or cherry-picked. Please do some fact checking on the internet after watching it and do not just absorb the information passively.
A couple of red flags I noticed while watching it:
1) The director makes it sound as he changed his mind while filming this documentary, and he shows his view only in the second half of the movie. In reality, his opinion is the starting idea behind the documentary and did not change at all.
2) Most of the people interviewed are strong supporters of the director's point of view (in particular in the last part of the documentary). The few people with an opposite point of view were not clearly informed on the topic of the interviews and the power of editing did the rest.
I must say, there are some interesting ideas in this documentary and it is well filmed, but unfortunately it is just mere propaganda.
This documentary is one of the best... goes great with Forks Over Knives and Hungry For Change. I think this one is my favourite, because it really drives home the message... Basically with all these types of documentaries that come out you are left questioning your future... if you aren't willing to change your lifestyle and eating habits to save your health and well being, and you aren't willing to change your lifestyle and eating habits to save the health and well being of the planet... then what the fck are you willing to do? People need to open their eyes and ears! The answer to the future and longevity of the human race is veganism.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
