Fast Food Nation is now a movie. For anyone who read this, you know the movie is going to be nasty!! Ew!
So BFF & I were chatting as to why this movie is not a documentary. I now know the answer! I saw Eric Schlosser on NY1 this morning and Neil Rosen asked him just that. Schlosser said he spent a year talking to directors and producers of big documentary movies but that all the big studios have corporate relationships with fast food chains. He said he'd rather have a fictionalized account than a watered down documentary.
Good point. Know whats neither watered down nor fictionalized? The book.
