  • *I watched two films that were sad enough to make me down, but I suggest watching it especially to whom don’t live in the US: “American beauty” (1999) and “revolutionary road” (2008).

Last week, I watched some documentary films about USA, They were:

It is about Wal-Mart as a retailer company, which produces goods in China because of cheap price of worker! In fact, they  exploit unfairly both Chinese workers  because they are paid low salary and suffer poor work condition and also Americans because low quality products.


2- Supersize me……..

It is about a man who wants to show the harmfull effects of eating fast-food and the low quality of Mc Donald’s. So he starts eating Mc Donalds’ food, 3 meals a day for a month. Before starting this dangerous project, he takes some medical examinations, which show his complete health. However, after 1 month, Guess what happened to him……


3-Food INC…..

It’s a film about food industry in USA, which includes Meat, Milk, Corn and Chicken. The movie concludes that the processed food, as a result of today’s food industry, is badly unhealthy, compared with the one produced by farmers.
