  • Mar 30, 2016

    Dinner Rush might be the best film you've never seen, and maybe one of the most underrated gangster flics of all time. As well as the fore mentioned the film is overall great in every aspect. The entire film takes place in a trendy NY Italian restaurant, it captures the essence and movement of the restaurant business to perfection. The films slow motion shots through the cook line to capture the action shows the pure affinity for food and is conveyed with great care. Give this film a chance, it will immediately capture your interest and leave you in awe until the last course.

    Great movie - must-see. Alex Corrado as the "heavy' very under-rated playing with John McGlone. Danny Aiello - as always one of the best actors - supporting cast exceptional.

    Might the the greatest movie that nobody has ever seen. Multiple plots, all flying in different directions, and yet they all manage to come together. Simply put, a brilliant film.

    Like a modern restaurant this is more about the style than the substance, but the myriad of plots are smartly held together and a large cast is managed well by director Giraldi and given memorable individuality by a smart script.

    Independent films have got liberty to take their plot and characterization to the level of audience-liking-them. We are very much in-debt to these independent films, which have filled our lives such Reservoir Dogs, Chop Shop, Man Push Cart etc. Since I am very much interested in foods, and I have always loved to see characters dining, either at home or in restaurants, such scenes have always increased my enthusiasm. Thank God, I finally could get this excellent movie from Bob Giraldi, who has taken total liberty to deal and interlock characters inside an Italian restaurant (Giraldi himself was owner of restaurant), which is supposedly a spot for mobsters. Here is restaurant owner who denies his links with criminal life, his son is master chef. From staff at kitchen to restaurant lobby, we have each single character filling devoid space with absolute entertainment. The movie explores various characters of in-demand characters with solid backgrounds, loan-shark, gambling, food-critic, police, mobster, intellectual, art, romance, film critic and so much more. I simply adore the work of lighting, the camera-man works his way through adjusting characters in compound places.
