6. Super Size Me (2004)
What’s it about?
Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock takes on the fast food industry using himself as Exhibit A! Eating a diet of purely fast foods, Spurlock exposes the health consequences with the aid of dieticians, doctors and lab tests. Can fast food be part of a healthy lifestyle?
Why’d it make the list?
Watching Spurlock doing his personal science experiment is like watching a car accident happen – you can’t help but watch with fascination as all the damage unfolds. You always hear dieticians argue that fast food can be included in a healthy diet, but do you really believe that? Super Size Me is a must watch for people who can’t kick the junk food habit, and one of the most entertaining documentaries we’ve ever seen!
