A.O. Scott makes a good point about the new documentary Super Size Me. Despite its overt anticorporate sentiment, does the movie actually elevate the importance of individual responsibility, since the narrator's unhealthy consumption of fast food is so willful and blatant? (Then again, isn't it odd how righteous McDonald's tries to appear by acknowledging that its product is unfit for regular consumption?) (I wrote about the legal questions of fast food last fall in the Tribune.)
