Eating Animals' thoughtful analysis and exploration of corporate farming is impressive, given the scope of the topic.

Hold on, fellow meat eaters! Director Christopher Quinn's film isn't the blood-spattered, viral footage-laced, sermonizing moral lecture you might think it will be.
If "Eating Animals" gets you to think twice about that prepackaged beef or frozen chicken, it will have done its job.
"Eating Animals" brings heart to farmers who raise livestock on traditional values by showing how emotional they would get when sending their animals to the slaughterhouse.
The message is clear, and memorably rendered: Care about where your meat comes from, because then you might eat less of it, feel better when you do eat it, and cause a little less suffering in the world.
Though not as graphically powerful as other documentaries on similar subjects... the emphasis on the disastrous global impact of these practices is more disturbing.
An annoyingly blinkered piece of agitprop-but an effective one, too.
If you begin researching where your food comes from and that carries over to your spending habits at the grocery store, Quinn, Foer, and Portman have done their job.
Can Eating Animals really enact substantial change? While I do believe the message here will be lost [like many others], it at least introduces viable alternatives.
Anyone who has ever had a relationship with an animal will be given pause by the film, and it might lead more of us to consider the moral cost of our supper.
Their stories are grim but hopeful.
The movie gives us good reason to believe all of this is true and accurate, but what do we do about it? The answers are as trite as the documentary is scattered.
Eating Animals is a thought-provoking documentary that will make people think twice about the food they put in their mouth.
