We’re 88Nine’s Justin Barney and Milwaukee Film’s Kpolly. We’re buds, we like cinema — we’re Cinebuds.
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.
*What’s a Members-Only screening at Milwaukee Film, you ask? Oh, just one of the sweet perks of our membership program. No big deal. Except that it IS a big deal. Milwaukee Film, just like Radio Milwaukee, has amazing benefits for all of you that support us with your membership. Check it out! Also, to be a member of Milwaukee Film AND Radio Milwaukee? I mean, that’s a truly elevated human being. A cool kid. A real mensch!
