      Bilge Ebiri Spirituality & Health Good intentions are fine, but what's needed, the film argues, isn't charity-what's needed are decent, sustainable wages and responsible business practices. Mar 24, 2020 Full Review David Lewis San Francisco Chronicle At the end of the day, Rawal is trying to make a point more than telling a story. It's hard to blame him, because we've avoided this shameful problem for too long, and for a change, someone's actually offering a reasonable solution. Rated: 3/4 Nov 27, 2014 Full Review Martin Tsai Los Angeles Times Because of the narrative's need for closure, the film bizarrely recasts the lost battle as something uplifting. Nov 20, 2014 Full Review Andrea Beach Common Sense Media Thought-provoking docu stresses economics of Big Grocery. Rated: 4/5 Apr 15, 2015 Full Review Jamie S. Rich Oregonian "Food Chains" points its finger directly at big box stores and price fixing as the source of most problems, while also offering practical solutions. Rated: 3/5 Nov 28, 2014 Full Review David Noh Film Journal International [Food Chains] should literally be seen by every American who unquestioningly lifts fork to mouth for their three squares a day.

      Audience Member Watched. Not very interesting though. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member 1/2/16 Netflix Anyone who complains that immigrants are coming here to steal American jobs should watch this movie. Even today thousands of poor people are being exploited for profit by big corporation. Thankfully, the Fair Food program is changing some of that and even Walmart signed on in 2014. As a consumer we need to support only those companies that participate in fair labor practices. We do not see how our food and wine gets to our tables and a movie like this shines a bright light on it and it is disturbing to say the least. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member This is an excellent documentary, discussing an important issue we all need to be more aware of and sensitive to. Grocery stores need to meet with the farm workers and pay they fair wages. Where are the millions of dollars going? Clearly the workers who do the backbreaking work deserve more pay! The documentary shows that their pay can easily be raised without raising the price of produce. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member "If you eat, you are affected." Excellent documentary highlighting the unfair practices facing farm workers. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Way, way, way better than Food, Inc. the Eva Longoria appearances are weird, but the politics are heartwarming and inspiring and the look at American agricultural practices insightful. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member If you eat, you should watch it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews
