I just like the fact most of this takes place in Iowa (which, for all intents and purposes is the same as Nebraska) and even though I'm no farmer, I know plenty of people who are. It's interesting to see just how important corn is - for good or bad. This would make a great companion to Food Inc if you're into documentaries at all.

While I agree that there's too much fluff and silliness in this documentary not relating directly to the main subject matter (and sometimes leading to some fallacies), there's still a lot presented. I found myself thinking about it for quite a while after seeing it - particularly the parts out how, in sort of a Gresham's Law of grains, cheap feed corn drove out other varieties of corn for humans, and of how the high-sounding label of "corn-fed beef" that we always hear is not a plus after all. Thought for food.

I can’t say all the information that were presented in this picture were new to me but there were definitely some shocking facts that I didn’t know or have forgotten about. I want to start off with the negatives. One of the main reasons why this documentary is less effective than it should have been is that Aaron Woolf, the director, spent too much time setting up everything–such as how the two friends that the audiences will follow throughout the picture, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, planted an acre of corn in Iowa. If they had cut off about twenty minutes from those scenes (like the two playing catch and sleeping with their crops), I think Woolf would have had more room for more in-depth interviews from scholars about the impacts of high fructose diets or presenting alternatives in order ...
