Fast Food Nation

I mistook this for a documentary since I've been watching through the popular and high impact food/climate docus alongside making some real-life "sustainable living" lifestyle change choices (we all should be.) As soon as the movie started I realized exactly what I was in for: Linklater's meandering dramatized vignettes of social and economic issues that intersect with or are caused by the fast food industry.

I found it amusing how tonally similar to Boyhood the overwrought dialogue and themes feel. It's corny, but as a catalog of scenarios intended to parallel real-life: it's fine, it exists.
