Fast Food Nation – Cannes 2006

  Don Henderson (Greg Kinnear) is marketing manager at Mickey’s Fast Food chain, which has its headquarters in Southern California. As it turns out that contaminated meat has got into the burger business, Henderson will be sent out to find out the cause of the scandal. It begins a journey that Don’s view fundamentally changed to his company. For he recognizes that America’s seemingly insatiable appetite for fast food one, in the truest sense of the word is dirty business.

Fast Food Nation is based on the book by American journalist Eric Schlosser, in 2001, the dark side of ” All-American Meal “and revealed in the U.S. climbed the bestseller lists. Relentlessly Schlosser exploitation, cultural imperialism and massive threat denounced the consumers and thus put in motion a process of rethinking in America, more and more denounced the excesses of the fast food industry. One topic that is Richard Linklater equally horrified and fascinated by how he wrote jointly with a dramatization of the locksmith to factual report, which – indicates the producer Malcolm McClaren – it is already, in the same way as mixing fiction and documentary The Great Rock ‘N’ Roll Swindle. Certainly an unusual approach, but Schlosser was enthusiastic about the idea of staging his book, just not as documentation but as a feature film.

A little squeamish jumps to the mirror with Linklaters film. “A well-intentioned film students from the secondary school,” says Wolfgng Höbel. The Berliner Zeitung believes fast food nation is indeed interesting, however, Linklaters weakest film to date. The Hollywood Reporter is that the movie characters are too boring to be interesting. The film is best suited to hold cinema-goers still like eating a hamburger. The Guardian of Manchester judge something positive. Fast Food Nation had humorous moments, the work, but it lacks substance or ääähmm, meat.
