Critic Reviews for Unser täglich Brot (Our Daily Bread)
Compelling, distressing documentary about the weirdly mechanized world of industrial farms, slaughterhouses and other sources of mass-produced food has a surrealist edge that gives the film a dreamlike ambience.
Essentially, it's a Koyanisquaasti for metal and meat fetishists, and that's no bad thing.
The camera simply looks, with unflinching interest, as plants and animals are processed (in European industrial settings) into the food we eat. It's up to the viewer to distinguish tastes of horror, compassion, and awe at the efficiency involved.
On a shot-by-shot basis, much of Our Daily Bread is stunning.
An alarming vision of the antiseptic order we have created around the business of stocking our fridge.
A thought-provoking documentary that would go well on a double bill with Richard Linklater's fictional Fast Food Nation.
