The Greatest Movie Ever Sold Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: First, he was bugged by the almighty burger, now Oscar®-nominated renegade filmmaker Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me) is biting the hand that feeds him by exposing Hollywood’s dirtiest little secret: the games they play to get advertisers’ products strategically placed in movies and on television. Spurlock uses his irreverent comedic style to infiltrate corporate boardrooms and ad agency pitch meetings to show how far they will go without our even knowing it!

Review: Morgan Spurlock has made some fantastic documentary film and television.  His Super Size Me and 30 Days are great watches.  He's a very fair and balanced observer of reality, so watching his documentaries is fantastic.   This go around he's examining the practice of paid product placement in movies.  If you're unfamiliar with this concept or don't really give it much credit, think again.  Spurlock really opens our eyes as he records himself trying to find funding for a film.  The meetings he has and the things that are said blew me away.  Its quite the industry.  This one is a great for any documentary and reality buff!
