The Future of Food

Film, Documentaries

Time Out says

You might want to think twice before biting into that juicy red tomato. Instead, chuck it at this maddeningly didactic documentary, which takes a nexus of complex agricultural, biological and sociological issues and flattens them into a -science is bad, nature is good- argument so simplistic it verges on condescending. Intended as a sort of Bowling for Columbine about biotech, the film plays heavily on emotion—languid shots of golden-hued crop fields are set to lilting traditional music, while images of beakers and test tubes are scored with ominous sci-fi sounds. But there's never an explanation of why this technology is dangerous or an admission that a counterargument to that claim even exists.
