American Meat won't fully counter the negative sentiment that the meat industry has, but it's not entirely propaganda, either. Full Review

The Hollywood Reporter
Although Graham Meriwether’s film is far less incendiary than such similarly themed efforts as "Food, Inc." and "Fast Food Nation," it nonetheless offers considerable — pardon the pun — food for thought in its exploration of modern-day cattle, hog and chicken production. Full Review

New York Daily News
There’s a good chunk of info for those eager to know how the sausage gets made, as well as the facts of life and death surrounding what we consume. You just have to pluck the PR feathers and find the good parts. Full Review
Nicolas Rapold
The New York Times
The film’s ending, introducing farmers whose lives (and weight) have been changed for the better, sounds enough like an infomercial to undermine the whole enterprise. Full Review
Steve Macfarlane
Slant Magazine
Despite the intensity of its scope and research, American Meat is a decidedly soft-hitting display of an overweening good faith that, frankly, just can't jibe with the times. Full Review
