So I like to think in some weird way, that someone who might stumble upon reading this blog post, is eating some form of fast food. Is it ironic, meh, but if anything that tells about our love of the fast food culture. Even on our downtime reading a blog about movies, we still find a way to squeeze in that burger or chicken. While the book, Fast Food Nation, is more of an expose on the fast food industry and all the working cogs that go into getting us that burger and fries, the movie is more of a drama that weaves together the humanistic side of all the cogs that produce our meals. It some aspects, it frames the way we perceive the food we eat and in other ways, skirts the real issue of the fast food industry. The story none the less is important and timely given our love of fast food.
