The most mouth-watering food films of all time
Kpolly here. This week on Cinebuds we're talking about the most mouth-watering FOOD FILMS of all time. Film about food is its own sub-genre and we're all in.
Milwaukee Film decided to make "Jiro Dreams of Sushi" the May Members-Only screening* for this month (at-home edition, of course). It's an amazing portrait of a man who works so hard and has such focus on his singular passion: making perfect sushi. His restaurant has worldwide acclaim and his story inspires.
This got us thinking about all the food movies we love. This, and the hundreds of current food/travel shows that are streaming online. From the family fiction film "Big Night" (a classic of the genre) to the wild craziness of "Tampopo" (mmm... ramen).
These films have a unifying theme hat anyone in the world can get on board with. The love of food and the spectacle of seeing a master prepare a meal is something that transcends boundaries.
I could have talked for hours about this subject. But, I got hungry. Enjoy.
