I may be late to the party (I know the movie was released in 2014), yet there are still things about it that urge me to type this. Is there something that feels wrong about this film for you, too?

Quick summary

  1. That Sugar film is a documentary of the Australian director-actor Damon Gameau who decided to go on a high-sugar diet for 60 days. He was not eating Victoria Sponges and Snickers, but the products labelled as ‘healthy’ – cereal bars, ready-made smoothies, sugar-ladden sauces etc.
