    The label is faded. I can never tell if it's pate or if it's giblets for the cats.

    This one probably deserves another look, as I kept dozing off, through no fault of the film.

    Upon reflection, it's amazing how a simple talking heads documentary can be enlivened so by great images that accompany the soundbites and statements at the heart of the film. That being said, the analysis offered is so prescient, so forward thinking, that it makes complete sense that it was picketed and rioted against when it was originally shown. If someone had told me this was made a few years ago, simply with archival footage, I'd have believed them given the level of detail and authenticity on display. Truly sobering.

    Boy, that Sandrine Bonnaire looks exactly like a cross between Brie Larson and Alicia Vikander. Eerie!
