Misleadingly labeled by some as a documentary about anorexia and bulimia, Katherine Gilday's highly provocative first feature from Canada (1990) might better be described as an essay on contemporary women's obsession with body weight. A lot of intelligent women speak in this film, but perhaps the most impressive “discourses” are Gilday's narration and her editing, both of which serve to link the disparate voices we hear into a powerful, unified statement.
