“As long as I can make stuff that is smart and funny, that makes people laugh, makes them think, and starts a conversation, that’s exactly where I want to be.” —Morgan Spurlock
Morgan Spurlock’s Oscar-nominated Super Size Me is one of the highest grossing documentaries of all time. It introduced us to his trademark irreverent sense of humor balanced with a serious investigation into a subject—further seen in Where in the World Is Osama Bin Laden?, 30 Days, and Freakonomics. In his most recent project, POM Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, Morgan once again writes, directs and stars in an entertaining, enlightening examination—this time of product placement and advertising in films.
