A thought-provoking doc for adventurous foodies and environmentalists alike.
If a diet that includes maggots, locusts, termites and buffalo worms doesn't entirely repel you, then the documentary "Bugs" might prove an intriguing look at the potential future of protein-rich nutrition sources for an expanding world.
It's gently comic, a touch naïve, and somewhat moving: These idealists are ready to fight to keep creepy-crawlies farm to table.
Will send moviegoers out with a feeling of culinary adventurousness, eager to sample well-prepared escamoles (ant larvae) or termite queen with mango.
Grubs as grub isn't a new idea, but Andreas Johnsen's documentary Bugs looks at the subject in a lively and thoughtful way.
You'll learn as you writhe along.
But Bugs resists the temptation to be benign or harmless.
This is truly fascinating stuff that not only makes (some) bugs look appetizing, but also starts a discussion before it's too late to have it.
It's a thought-provoking film that just may have you thinking twice before you fish out that fruit fly in your glass of wine!
While Bugs is a brief yet fascinating culinary adventure in the vein of some of the more extreme shows you'll find on cable TV, it never overstays its welcome nor does the filmmaking dive into full-fledged manipulative activism.
[Bugs] lacks cohesion in its philosophy as well as its intent. Its biggest failure, however, is its inability to convince its audience that bugs could turn out to be a nice, light snack.
Of the three major documentaries about edible insects presently making the rounds (Bugs on the Menu, Bugs, and The Gateway Bug), Bugs is probably the most ambitious and, without question, the most eloquent of the lot.
