The book: "Schlosser is part essayist, part investigative journalist. His eye is sharp, his profiles perceptive, his prose thoughtful but spare; this is John McPhee behind the counter ..." - The Washington Post Why it's unfilmable: It's a non-fiction, muckraking book about what we eat and what it does to us. There's a lot of slaughterhouse scenes and obesity between those covers ... The movie: "Effectively balanced between the nonfiction muckraking of Eric Schlosser's bestselling exposé and the loosely structured character drama of Richard Linklater's adaptation, the film is fascinating food for thought." -- Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune "The fiction that Schlosser and the director Richard Linklater have extracted from the book is a mess, with narrative lines that go astray or simply wind up in the air." -- David Denby, The New Yorker
