A movie that everyone should definitely see, even if you've already seen 'WHAT THE HEALTH'.
19 May 2017 | by HellmantSee all my reviews

'EATING YOU ALIVE': Four Stars (Out of Five)

Another new documentary (like the recent film 'WHAT THE HEALTH') exploring how what we eat causes the majority of the chronic diseases that are killing us. Also like 'WHAT THE HEALTH', the movie proves that veganism is the best way to save all of our lives (also the planet, and of course the animals). The film was directed and co-produced by first time feature filmmaker Paul David Kennamer Jr. I saw this documentary at a special screening on the Oregon State University campus, and I'm glad I did. It's an impressive film, just like 'WHAT THE HEALTH' is!

The filmmakers interview several doctors, health experts, scientists and celebrities (like Samuel L. Jackson, James Cameron, and Penn Jillette to name a few) about their knowledge, expertise and feelings about nutrition and diet. Many of the experts they interview are also featured in 'WHAT THE HEALTH'. They also briefly discuss animal cruelty and the effects that eating meat and dairy have on the environment (things that the other documentary doesn't really go into at all). There's even a few vegan recipes thrown into the film as well. The vegan way of life, and diet, is of course presented as the solution to most of our health problems, and big business is once again named as the major culprit.

The film is not as well made as 'WHAT THE HEALTH', but it is equally as educational (and emotional). A lot of the information presented in the movie is the same info that is also featured in the other (better) documentary; but it does have some new (different) information too. I think if I had seen this film first, I would have enjoyed it even more. It's not structured as well though, and the music in it kind of sucks. I do always enjoy hearing from celebrities though, about subjects that are important to me, especially the likes of Samuel L. Jackson and James Cameron (my favorite director). Although it's not one of the best documentaries I've ever seen, it's still a very important film. One that everyone should definitely see, even if you've already seen 'WHAT THE HEALTH'.
