If you running out of movies you haven’t seen, it might be time to supplement your supply with some interesting food documentaries on Netflix’s streaming video.
Despite its unappealing jacket and bland title, we enjoyed King Corn’s true story about two young city dwellers who move to Iowa and contract for, treat the soil and plant a large field of corn. You learn how unfree today’s growers are and the obstacles they encounter.
Nevertheless, it’s not long before you are looking forward to their harvest with them, its victories and large disallusionments.
Corn is a HUGE part of all our lives, much of it needlessly and to our detriment. King Corn let’s you learn with the guys and gives you a wide-eyed vision of the whole corn industry.
