Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't expect a solution (which is actually good!) This is the second documentary I've watched regarding the (re-)introduction bugs as food. Compared to "Bugs on the Menu", this film has a much more naturalistic feel to it. It also dares to look beyond the "eating bugs will save the world" catchphrase that is very present in Bugs on the Menu. The film moves fast and the main characters are very interesting to watch as they develop from passionate adventurers towards disillusioned Davids realizing Goliath has just gotten way too big. Don't expect any definite answers or a straight solution to the problem this film raises, but it does engage your mind for some critical thinking. (which is good!)
