[It's] a must-see for organic food zealots. For those who aren't, but are still curious about food and farming issues, rent "Food, Inc." instead.

The one-sidedness of "Farmageddon'' isn't just an artistic failing. It's an argumentative failing, too.

Canty is hardly an ignorant Jenny McCarthy-style alarmist. Rather, she's a concerned citizen asking questions about why federal and state food regulators are less interested in science than Texas Republicans.

For a film about the benefits of natural food and raw milk, there is ironically nothing organic about Farmageddon.

Rabble-rousing agitprop, asserting the consumer's right to have access to healthful food, whether it comes from the farm stand or the supermarket.

Kristin Canty's Farmageddon is a plucky, grassroots, urban mulch pile of info-tainment

Racks up damning anecdotal evidence without substantially altering the discussion.

A lesser effort in the burgeoning canon, it's still effective in its goals: illuminating how denigrated and dangerous our food supply is.

The documentary about government interference with small farmers is repetitious and lacks entertainment value.

An eye-popping wake-up call revealing how the USDA and FDA have increasingly waged war on America's small farmers even when they can prove they are contributing healthful products to our food supply.

A worthy addition to the growing annals of movies and books advocating for sustainable farming methods.
