Peter Travers, film critic for Rolling Stone, called Food, Inc. "scarier than anything in the last five Saw horror shows." That might be due to the fact that once the movie's over, the carnage it revealed continues to occur. Subtitled A Participant Guide: How Industrial Food Is Making Us Sicker, Fatter and Poorer - and What You Can Do About It, the film is an unflattering look at the food industry, who runs it and why it has a vested interest in keeping us malnourished and fat at the same time. And should you be so inclined, it also tells you how to fight back. It's no wonder that t'afia owner and chef Monica Pope, who's writing her first book (Eating Hope and Other Things I've Had to Stomach), chose it for this week's presentation of Movies Houstonians Love: Meals on Reels. 7 p.m. Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 1001 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-639-7515 or visit www.mfah.org. $6 to $7.
