“Fresh” (the movie).

Friday, May 7th, 2010

I went to Colorado Springs last night to see “Fresh” (the movie). It has some similarities and interview subjects in common with the previously mentioned “Food, Inc.,” but unlike that otherwise excellent movie this one doesn’t suck up to Walmart. “Fresh” is an unrelenting attack on industrialized agriculture.
