Super Size Me (Ws)
Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, rejected five times by the USC film school, won the best director award at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival for this alarmingly personal investigation into the health hazards wreaked by our fast food nation. Under extensive medical supervision, Spurlock subjects himself to a steady diet of McDonald's cuisine for 30 days just to see what happens. In less than a week, his ordinarily fit body and equilibrium undergo dark and ugly changes: Spurlock grows fat, his cholesterol rockets north, his organs take a beating, and he becomes subject to headaches, mood swings, symptoms of addiction, and lessened sexual energy. The gimmick is too obvious to sustain a feature documentary; Spurlock actually spends most of the film probing insidious ways that fast food companies worm their way into school lunchrooms and the hearts of young children who spend hours in McDonald's playrooms. French fries never looked more nauseating. --Tom Keogh

The pace is good, and for 100 minutes, you get to follow writer/director Morgan Spurlocks 30-days diet of McD food. At first, things are joyous, fun and feels childish. But as time goes on, his doctors and medical advisors get on the worried side and almost all at once demand that he stops the experience.
Ever since, the "golden arches" have lost a lot of their prestige, and as a period piece from 2004, "Super Size Me" is a movie that talks about a society that cannot go on eating such meals, no matter how cheap they may be.
Give this one a spin, it's going by quite fast and can be a discussion starter in nutritional values, comedic moments and more.
