    I've never really been into documentaries. And this one just sounds interesting, if not truly wonderful.

    Five Stars could simply be given to the crazy head chef Ferran Adria and his artistic creativity that turns concept into reality. This might not be everyone's cup of frozen tea cubes in a sugar cone cup but it worked for me.

    Showcases the creative process behind El Bulli's exquisite dishes. Ferran Adria and his team of elves brainstorm and experiment in zen-like mode to create dishes out of this world. Too bad the restaurant has closed.

    The lack of voice over and the spontaneity of the story are welcomed. A bit boring, too zen. The weakness of this documentary was that it failed to explain Adria's philosophy and genius.

    You'll need to know the El Bulli back-story, and definitely love your food, but if you do there's some incredible insight to be had from this arms-length doc. At the heart of it Adria's icy management style whichever his on-screen presence compelling. If you're looking for a gripping story then forget it, but of you're interested in how genius and imagination are wrangled into truly world beating food then it's a must-see

    el boredom. seriously. a documentary with no clear direction. just a videographer's capture of a day in the life at the then #1 spanish restaurant in the world that succumbed to foreclosure last year due to dreadful finances. we don't get to see the brillance and genius of ferran adria. fell asleep twice during this screening.
