SUPERSIZE ME
Supersize Me, the new doc, absolutely rocks. Funny and informative and smart, it also proves a theory I've long held - documentaries should not feature documentarians on camera in the speaking roles unless they are very entertaining. No matter how important the truth being told, if you can't hold the camera's eye, get out of the way. Morgan Spurlock, the filmmaker, is a treat to watch.

BTW - the Enzian, our local Art House theater which serves food - is offering a veggie burger and salad on the menu during the run of Supersize Me. They are keeping track how many people order vs the regular burger and fried. So far, regular burger is crushing veggie burger like a grape.
