While I support any effort to show people how the Western diet is bad for your health, this film comes across as more of a PETA commercial than an attempt to follow 3 people willfully changing their lifestyle. I'm completely against the way that mass farm treats animals but spreading the vegan word must surely come from illustrating the gains that individuals make rather than having a political agenda about animal treatment. That said, what is shown in the film in the animal processing facilities is disturbing and the public should be aware - but let's make that a focus of a different film.
For me, this film lacked the journey promised in the subtitle about following 3 New Yorkers becoming vegan which could have been funny, personal, touching and dramatic. As a contrast, I think Forks Over Knives is a substantially more approachable film for non-vegans and doesn't press the animal cruelty buttons to guilt people into quitting hamburgers.
There is some sloppy editing in this film, including at least one glaringly obvious misspelling, but the overall messages this documentary puts forth are valid, important, and quite compelling.
A definite must watch in my opinion.
Ok, that being said, if you want to reinforce the reason you don't eat meat, than this movie will help with that line of thinking. I just wouldn't use it as a reference for how to eat healthy.
This documentary, although not perfect, does a good job of illustrating one single element that can not be over looked when we choose to eat meat or other animal products such as cow's milk or cheese - that of suffering. I am not talking about the moment of death that comes to animals but of the abuses that starts at birth, continues throughout their lives and ultimately ends with their death. The production of animal food products in the industrialized world is a cycle of violence that is so brutal in its scope that the only possible way for people to eat its products is to be in sheer ignorance of it.
I wholeheartedly believe in the power of truth and although the director's agenda is clear in the film it nevertheless doesn't take away from the fact of all the harm - environmental, ecological, and ultimately the harm done to animals - that animal farming does.
To answer the question of, should meat eaters watch this video, the answer is a resounding YES. Watch it to know exactly what it is your actions are contributing to; watch it to make an informed decision; watch it to change not only your life for the better but to change our culture that accepts the degradation and death of so many lives.
