Reviews
Taking a lively approach to an increasingly serious 21st century issue, the skillfully assembled documentary "Wasted! The Story of Food Waste" proves as eye-opening as it is mouth-watering.
Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times
As this movie clearly illustrates, people need to pay attention.
Amy Glynn, Paste Magazine
Wasted! is sure to be mind-expanding for anyone who's never contemplated what happens when excess food is scraped off one's plate. But the film's real novelty lies in the demonstration of actual solutions that have already been put into practice.
