Big Boys Gone Bananas

A documentarian attempts to shed light on the story of allegedly poisoned banana farmers and becomes the target of a multi-national corporation in this chilling film. Gripping and terrifying, Big Boys Gone Bananas shows the lengths a huge food producer will go to to protect its brand, including threats, surveillance, and suppression of a film-maker's First Amendment rights. I was fascinated by how the US media is less than suspicious about massive corporations, while the rest of the world views them with distrust. I guess it ultimately shows who wields the power at US media outlets, and it's the advertisers.
