How corny!

I went to Upstate Films in Rhinebeck on Sunday to see the new film “The Savages” (worth seeing, by the way), and I was struck by a preview shown beforehand for an upcoming movie called “King Corn.”

In the same vein as movies like “Super Size Me,” “An Inconvenient Truth” and “Sicko,” Aaron Woolf’s “King Corn” apparently is about the evils of corn and how the crop and its derivatives infiltrate virtually everything in our diets.

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it ironic that this movie will be shown in places that make most of their snack counter revenue from a corn product?
