What the activist drama Fast Food Nation does with talk and the aid of movie stars, Our Daily Bread, a riveting documentary by Austrian filmmaker Nikolaus Geyrhalter, does even better, with no voice-over and barely a word spoken by the unidentified workers involved in matter-of-fact killing and harvesting. The camera simply looks, with unflinching interest, as plants and animals are processed (in European industrial settings) into the food we eat. It’s up to the viewer to distinguish tastes of horror, compassion, and awe at the efficiency involved in such matters of death and life.
