I think I know why some people didn't like this because it was pretty weird. The writing seemed a little naive and "college-kid in his dormroom"-y. I still liked it though. The direction was very creative and the acting was really, really good. Gangsters had to go through the financial crisis, too which is kind of funny to think about. Also, I liked that the gangsters are shown to be a bit more disorganized and life-like. Organized crime looks to be a lot less organized and a lot more just "Networked" crime. I could see a lot of people not liking Killing Them Softly, because it takes big risks, gets a little soap boxy, and is not a shoot-em up. I found it to be creative, darkly funny, a little annoying, and really entertaining. Good slow action film with great direction.
Morgan Spurlock is right, eating fast food everyday for every meal is bad. Going from eating like a health freak to eating fast food for every meal of every day is near suicide. While I don't eat meat from fast food because of the movie Food Inc, this movie only made me think twice about what a documentary really accomplishes. Everything in this movie was just like all of the McDonalds ads and marketing it attacks, over the top and very intentionally exaggerated. For educational purposes, there are a few things to be had, but Super Size Me should be taken with a grain of salt and not much more.
This is a must see for any person that cares about the age they are going to die. Of course, the message is shoved down your throat to the point of choking on it, but it's because you are absolutely supposed to listen. From a film perspective, documentaries tend to run together but that could be because I've seen so few and the ones I have seen are well regarded. Everyone should see this movie even if it is a bit inconvenient.
