"faith is for nuns and amateurs" ham tyler
Easily true. Clearly when one student said "right wing radical Timothy McVeigh". I was able to put up with the veiled shots up until then but that did it.share

If I am to correctly interpret your cryptic comment, I can only conclude that you are accusing the film of being too left wing, an idea which seems ludicrous, if only because Linklater himself would probably best be described as a libertarian.
I think that the simple fact of your inability to overcome the trappings of categorisation and labelling in politics speaks for itself in upbraiding your discontent with this film. You perceived the film as "left wing" (socialist perhaps?), but I did not.
Above all, Fast Food Nation was trying to put the industry on display; I believe it succeeded. It was successful, and very effective at, rebuking the fundamental flaws and dark patches in the system, whether that be encouraging dehumanising labour for illegal immigrants, producing potentially harmful food on a massive scale or showing the evil and corruption that can reside in a corporate world.
No, I do not believe that this film was biased; it took non-fiction into the imaginary world, and for that, people no longer saw its voice as that -- of a documentary: of the common truth -- of reason, statistics, politics and professional opinion, but rather the conceited view of one single director, Richard Linklater.
Is crap. Populistic and manipulative (like Moore).
And after the film they go grab a burger (like Moore does all the time, cf. his body size).
What is wrong with being left wing. I would be embarrassed to be right wings after this. LOL
