I don't know why this film has such a low RT score. I just saw it last week and loved it. It's more of an art film along the lines of Robert Bresson's DIARY OF A COUNTRY PRIEST or Krzysztof Zanussi's STRUCTURE OF CRYSTALS--or Bob Rafelson's FIVE EASY PIECES--than anything else. It's certainly not a twee little film about self-congratulatory Foodies preaching the virtues of organics. It's actually a very smart, dark thought-provoking film about alienation and male melancholy that stays with you.
