Killer At Large

Killer At Large
1:44:48 | 2008

Categories: Documentary, Health and Food, Politics

Featuring appearances by consumer advocate Ralph Nader, author Michael Pollan (The Omnivore's Dilemma) and many others, KILLER AT LARGE is an overview of the politics, social effects and problems associated with the rising epidemic of American obesity. Obesity is fast becoming the single greatest killer of Americans, leading some experts to claim that we are on the cusp of an evolutionary disaster. As former Surgeon General Richard Carmona states, "Obesity is a terror within; it's destroying our society from within and unless we do something about it, the magnitude of the dilemma will dwarf 9/11 or any other terrorist event that you can point out." Rates of obesity in the United States are climbing at an unprecedented rate across all ages and ethnic groups, and are leading to the first generation of children whose life expectancy is shorter than that of their parents. This incisive and informative documentary uncovers this epidemic, examining the causes and suggesting ways to reverse this deadly trend.

This farmer hating on people who go to the super market, like costco, really annoys me. How ignorant do you have to be to assume everyone can go to an open market? I live in Kansas and there is no farmers market during our long winter (3-5 months). So, get some knowledge and understand boundaries applied to different states due to different climates.

If every American lost 1 lb we could save 38 million barrels of oil a year. Well as it is we consume 20 million barrels a DAY. Problems.

Ralph Nader vaguely reminds me of Billy Bob Thornton.

This is a really important film! However I'd suggest film makers make films shorter for viewing attention.

I would have liked them to talk about the delicate nature of polyunsaturate oils that these french fries have been cooked in, most likely. Very, very unhealthful, But very comprehensive look at the industrial profit making off of the public and public money such as the Dept. of Agriculture endorsing Shrek and then the "food" commercials with Shrek on the packages.

As long as the U.S. remains a corporatocracy with political, profit-making ideals, things will stay the same.

This is one of my favorite documentaries. However, I strongly advise the producers to have the sound re-edited. The music constantly overpowers the interviews throughout the film. Quite annoying and frustrating. I think that this is one of the most important documentaries to come out during the past few years and the producers do a real disservice by not taking care of these highly important elements in the film.
