Caveat emptor really applies here, because your health is at stake. Do your research, do your homework, and use common sense.

It's Michael Moore without the truculence, PBS without the pretension, CNN without the commercial grandstanding.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
November 26, 2008
Comes off mostly like a hybrid of retro-style educational film and late-night infomercial.

[A] condescending, manipulative film.
November 21, 2008
A powerful documentary that offers both a chilling expose of the toxins in our food that are causing so much disease and an affirmation of a plant-oriented therapy that has cured cancer in many individuals.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
November 18, 2008
An unusual and sobering documentary which turns conventional wisdom about health matters on its head.
November 18, 2008
Boring like a one-note school lecture but nevertheless is credible as it makes its case about the need for alternative medicines.

There may be truth in what Kroschel says, but you won't find it in this pedantic film, which has all the veracity of a late-night TV infomercial.

November 13, 2008
The picture carries an element of nostalgia and yet thunders down too hard with a lot of one-sided perspectives.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
November 12, 2008
The director's suggestion that big pharmaceutical companies have no interest in actually curing cancer is credible, but the film itself unfortunately makes Kroschel's beliefs come off like just so much hippie propaganda.

November 12, 2008
While docu's claims and criticism yield nothing especially new, the form of their exposition seems singularly ingenious, stylistically falling somewhere between a 1950s educational film and some sort of Norman Rockwellian infomercial.
November 12, 2008
Kroschel positions The Beautiful Truth as a sort of instructional video for young people on the merits of eating healthy, but its creepy messianic vibe is far more toxic than all the pollutants in all the processed food you could ever consume.
November 10, 2008
The end result not only constitutes an uncomfortable--dare I say, inorganic--collusion of fact and fiction but also suggests we're being indoctrinated into a cult.

Quack or saint? Dr. Gerson, whose work in allegedly curing cancer by alternative means, is highlighted in a light, even convincing way.
