This documentary is a mixture of all documentaries. For example,
in the documentary he acknowledges the presence of the camera
(Expository documentaries); he does this so that it is as if he is
talking to the audience and so that they feel apart of the
investigation more and also he explains what he is doing which
allows the audience to not feel confused or unsure on what he is
undertaking within each scene. One type of documentary
supersized me is, is a social documentary because it is about
how on one hand people are to blame for being obese and
having health problems in addition to the consuming bad foods.
Another type of documentary supersized me is, is a observational
Themes Binary opposition, for example the man being on a vegan diet and then eating fast food.
Initially, another way in which there is a binary opposite is due to the fact that the man who
undertakes the documentary starts off very fit and healthy and by the end of the
experiment doctors were informing him about lung problems in which the bad diet has
caused and also have caused him to have very high cholesterol levels.
Manipulation of others in food industry because the man in the documentary reveals to the
audience why too much fast food can do to the body and so brings to their attention to try
and avoid having fast food.
Diabetes: one person who features in the documentary was in a hospital bed and had
diabetes in addition to bad eating, and so this informs the audience about the dangers of
Obesity is also a theme in the documentary, again, to inform the audience what fast food
can do and initially to persuade them to avoid fast food.
Profit is also a theme in the documentary because it talks about how the fast food places
make profit off of people being unhealthy and eating their food.
Dieting and health is an obvious theme because it is informing the audience on what
eating badly can cause and in one part a doctor shows how much sugar has been
consumed by the man within the month by eating fast food in which reveals that eating too
much of it can be extremely unhealthy.
Personal responsibility is also a theme because it was discussed in the documentary that
it is the peoples fault because they are the ones that have chosen to eat the food.
Linear because it is a
documentary that speaks about
what is going on and explains
Closed because he did what he
needed to do
But also open because he was
not able to interview anyone

and so people will believe these people talking because
they feel as though they are being truthful and accurate.
o Work uniform for the people who work in McDonalds
which is another confirmation for the audience that the
man is sticking to the McDonalds diet.
o The main man in the documentary is wearing very casual
and everyday clothing which may be used because he fits
into society so people feel as though being a victim of the
fast food industry can happen to anyone.
o Shocked face when the man realises how high his
cholesterol levels had gotten which informs the audience
that the results are not good.
o Locations include McDonalds, a doctors office, the mans
home, the streets and a boardroom, in which all fits in with
what is going on in the documentary at that point.

has consumed throughout the experiment so that the
audience can see the damage that is being done.

documentary is pictures that have been found
off of the internet, for example all of the fast

used to inform how many fast food places
their are and how people are easily victims to
eating them. Furthermore, another achieve
material used is official letters from
McDonalds which are used to show the
audience that what is being discussed is valid
and truthful. However, another archive
material used is the names of people who are
being interviewed in which is used so that the
audience knows who they are and what their
