At BestForFilm, we take the attitude that people who buy Tesco value beefburgers probably deserve whatever they get. However, if your lunch has been interrupted by some unwanted equine DNA (and let’s face it, who wants DNA in their lunch? It’d get tangled round the salad) then we can offer assistance. For your lip-smacking delectation, we present the top 10 burgers in cinema – and there’s not a horse to be seen.
It’s nice when documentary filmmakers come up with new angles to the ‘poor underdog’ theme. Since the genre first became commercial enough for cinema release, we’ve had our heartstrings pulled every which way, to the point where the concept’s getting old. But Joe Berlinger’s new release Crude, which centres around a class action by a group of Ecuadorian tribes against a US oil giant, manages to raise some unusually interesting points about the nature of the environmentalist movement and just who is right and wrong in a case like this.
