Dr. Lorna's Seven Day Poodle Diet

Lorna Boschman

1998, 53:00 minutes, colour, English


The Poodle Diet is full of opinions on being fat, and offers a hard-hitting look at the human costs of the overblown diet industry. Interviews with fat people are intercut with luscious footage of fat animals in nature and ads for the extremely twisted Poodle Diet. Entertaining, thought provoking and anti-sensationalist.
