Critic Reviews for Food Chains
At the end of the day, Rawal is trying to make a point more than telling a story. It's hard to blame him, because we've avoided this shameful problem for too long, and for a change, someone's actually offering a reasonable solution.
Because of the narrative's need for closure, the film bizarrely recasts the lost battle as something uplifting.
How miserable does your day have to be to transform the breeze from a pesticide spray into a blessing?
Rawal takes a compassionate but dry approach that suggests he's focused on making a call to arms, not art.
Americans remain all too disconnected from those who toil in grim living and working conditions to supply their food. Maybe it's about time to worry.
Audience Reviews for Food Chains
Anyone who complains that immigrants are coming here to steal American jobs should watch this movie. Even today thousands of poor people are being exploited for profit by big corporation. Thankfully, the Fair Food program is changing some of that and even Walmart signed on in 2014. As a consumer we need to support only those companies that participate in fair labor practices. We do not see how our food and wine gets to our tables and a movie like this shines a bright light on it and it is disturbing to say the least.
