Fast Food Nation

The Times, Film

By Wendy Ide at the Cannes Film Festival

EARLY buzz about Richard Linklater’s Fast Food Nation as a Cannes competition front-runner quickly turned stale after the muted response to the first press screening.
The first part of Linklater’s double-pronged assault on the festival (his rotoscope animation, A Scanner Darkly, will be shown next week in the festival sidebar, Un Certain Regard), the film is a fictionalised interpretation of Eric Schlosser’s crusading book on the fast-food industry and its dubious practices.
