    Ironically, Three Stars is lucky to even get two stars.

    This movie has, perhaps, the unfortunate position of being viewed after Jiro Dreams of Sushi, by which I now judge all food documentaries. It's not a bad film but just very superficial and incomplete. Featuring more chefs than is possible to profile with depth, the film never discovers a chef's driving obsession and what motivates them to get to and stay at the top of their careers and what is the cost of staying at the top. It does offer the viewer a rare glimpse into the operation of kitchen and in Jean-Georges' case, operation of his business. The music is wholly un remarkable. The editing could be tightened.

    Quite interesting, if you are into understanding the application of the Michelin Star rating system.

    It had potential, but jumps from chef to chef too quickly to really get a story.
