Fast Food Nation is a 2006 fictionalized film loosely based on the non-fiction book Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser. It was filmed on locations in Mexico and the United States (in Texas and Colorado) under the codename Coyote.

Reception

Fast Food Nation received mixed reviews and was not widely distributed. Manohla Dargis of The New York Times called Fast Food Nation “The most essential political film from an American director since Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11”, while JoBlo’s Berge Garabedian said “none of the stories in the film are interesting (except one), the ultimate lack of connection between them all is surprising and worst of all, it all just felt like a school lesson to me, taught by a condescending know-it-all.” The film’s rating on Rotten Tomatoes stands at 51%.
