DIRECTOR Richard Linklater's exposes the evils of fast-food production in the United States.

And although dramatised for the screen, it still retains much of writer Eric Schlosser's original thoughts when he uncovered the workings of the industry and the consequences its products have on our health.

It exposes the food chain: from the illegal Mexican migrant workers employed in meat processing plants, through to the teenagers behind the counters in fast-food outlets, and the wheeling and dealing of executives in the corporate world who see profit as the only aim of the whole process.

Certainly, a thought-provoking piece of work.
