Laura Collado and Jim Loomis dive deep into the psyche of Albert Adrià in the documentary "Constructing Albert," which follows the chef on a journey to push the boundaries of fine dining.
The movie is 82 minutes of Albert nattering on about wanting to be better, but he talks about food only in the abstract.
The film... shows how these meals are built from the ground up, and with backbreaking work. It also addresses, albeit not with too much specificity, the economic anxieties of creating these businesses.
Laura Collado and Jim Loomis' cleverly edited and deliciously photographed food porn is a tasty peek at the cutthroat culinary world and one of its most mysterious figures.
It will satisfy the appetites of both the curious and food-focused alike.
Mildly entertaining, but mostly dull, hagiographic and occasionally drags.
Like a Facebook posting, Constructing Albert has the wafting, slightly off aroma of self-promotion.
Adrià always seems to be reaching for some notion of excellence just beyond the borders of definition.
"Constructing Albert" introduces us to an intensely focused man who values his family and the people who help bring his ideas to life as much as he does forging a new path in the culinary world.
