Too simplistic. You can't help but recall a much more insightful and thorough doc that treads similar ground, Food, Inc.

Very informative documentary even if it allows the filthy Steve Ells of Chipotle's a platform.

A low-key, fairly evenhanded look at industrial vs. organic methods of raising livestock.

Less sensationalist than its similarly themed predecessors, this informative documentary makes a strong case for the benefits of organic famring.

An advocacy film better suited for a class than for a cinema.

Despite the intensity of its scope and research, American Meat is a decidedly soft-hitting display of an overweening good faith that, frankly, just can't jibe with the times.

Documentary about the current state of the meat industry is straightforward yet upbeat, almost "feel-good."

The problem is that this rah-rah chronicle never addresses the dangerous, distressing disparity between non-organic farms, which are still the norm, and the ones focused on here.

American Meat won't fully counter the negative sentiment that the meat industry has, but it's not entirely propaganda, either.
