Fast Food Nation
A fictional story about the true conditions of immigrant smuggling, the meat industry, politics, and many other topics interwoven into a cohesive, interesting, yet depressing story.
Diarios de Motocicleta (Motorcycle Diaries)
A dramatization about a motorcycle trip that changed the main character's life. An excellent film, and an excellent window into the socio-economic and political/cultural climate of South America.
Sad, emotional roller coaster, good film, about a man's struggle with disease and his fair share of dysfunctional family drama, also a window into the underbelly of Spanish society.
You will think about this film every time you eat.
Intense film. INTENSE. German.
