Two Healthy Flicks Now on DVD

You can give your next at home movie night a healthy focus; two of my favorite docs of the year are now out on DVD.

  • Enlighten Up!: Filmmaker Kate Churchill, a yoga devotee, takes yoga cynic Nick Rosen on a wild ride through the range of yoga styles to see if the ancient art has universal power. Both filmmaker and subject are affected by the process. Available for purchase ($22) or add the title to your Netflix queue.
  • Food, Inc.: The underbelly of the food industry is exposed in this documentary narrated by Omnivore's Dilemma author Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser of Fast Food Nation. Arguing for sustainable food production, the film's antagonist is not the farmer or the carnivore but multinational corporation Monsanto. Purchase ($14) the 94-minute film or Netflix it.

Food Inc was such a depressing thing to watch. It really made me think twice about the eggs we eat. But then I saw New Zealand documentary on their farms and it was heaven compared to what was in Food Inc so now I'm OK :)

Oh, FYI...Food, Inc. will be available instantly on Netflix on December 3, so if you wait until then you won't have to wait for it to ship to you.

I saw Food, Inc. recently and I've got about 30 pages left to read of The Omnivore's Dilemma. Pretty tough stuff considering I am an omnivore, but no matter how depressed it makes me, I'm glad that I now carefully consider the kinds of food I am eating. Plus, I feel fortunate to be so close to several farmers markets.
