Super Size Me (17-Jan-2004)

Director: Morgan Spurlock

Writer: Morgan Spurlock

Keywords: Documentary, Propaganda, Obesity

Muckraking filmmaker Morgan Spurlock explores the consequences of America's fast food obsession through a month-long McDonald's-only diet.

Morgan Spurlock, independent filmmaker standing six feet, two inches tall and weighing a hair over a hundred and eighty-five pounds, decides to eat nothing but McDonald's food three times a day, every day, for one month to demonstrate the effects of their product on his body. "Super-sizing" his meal every time he is asked, Spurlock's above-average physical condition falls off a cliff as his experiment wears on, dovetailing with a political narrative fingering fast food and ever-increasing portion sizes as key contributors to the United States' runaway obesity epidemic.
