“Jon Stewart...would probably approve of ‘Stink!’” - The New York Times “Stink! carries with it the unassailable whiff of common sense.” - Variety “That yucky body spray could actually kill somebody.” - The Hollywood Reporter The award-winning documentary “Stink!” opens with a foul smell, a pair of kids pajamas, and a single father trying to find out what could cause such a foul odor. Refusing to give up on getting a straight answer, director Jon Whelan stumbles on a disturbing truth hiding in plain view, which is that many products on our store shelves are not safe -- by design. Entertaining, enlightening, witty, and at times almost absurd, “Stink!” takes you on a madcap journey from the retailer to the laboratory, through corporate boardrooms, down back alleys, and into the halls of Congress. Follow Whelan as he clashes with political and corporate operatives all trying to protect the darkest secrets of the chemical industry. You won’t like what you smell.
