    A Signature Performance: Oscar nominee and passionate vegan Casey Affleck highlights the more-relevant-than-ever issues of business ethics and food production in Upton Sinclair’s meatpacking industry bombshell.

    Kamigaeru says: "Caveat emptor: Powerful book, subpar narration"
    "The Narrating was Quite Good."

    What did you love best about The Jungle: A Signature Performance by Casey Affleck?

    I felt an incredible amount of empathy for this man, Jurgis. I had never read Upton Sinclair before this, and frankly all i knew about this book was that it spurred the creation of the FDA and that Sinclair was a Socialist.


    What does Casey Affleck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    For being a 100 years old it read to me like it was written in a very modern fashion.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Honestly, i felt a flood of empathy. Kinda weird experience. lol, but cool.


    Any additional comments?

    Come to find out Sinclair wrote OIL! which the movie 'There Will Be Blood' was based on.
