I felt like a 9 year old seeing the first movie. I cheered , held back tears, laughed. After so many in the series failing to evoke a thing , this one made me care about the characters again. It had some storylines that were less exciting, or not fully explained. The overall result was wonderful.
I wasn't expecting to love this movie. I went in thinking it will be basic just ok sequel in the series. I was so very wrong! It is perhaps the best of the series. I'd say equivalent to guardians of the galaxy. I laughed so much.
It is a psychological thriller with theology overtones. The last twenty minutes could trigger ptsd in vets be warned. Overall I enjoyed the film. I went in expecting strange and I got strange so expectations met. I still wonder what the powder represents. If bardems character was supposed to be god then Aronofsky sees god as quite the narcissist craving every beings love and admiration. If you like odd thrillers and don't mind the underlying messages you will enjoy it.
Saw one of the advance screenings last night at cia. Entire audience was clapping at the end. We laughed so much. Kudos to favreau for not going the obvious direction we have grown to expect from movies.
chef is a well told and comic story of a once up and coming star chef. Dustin Hoffman plays his role as chef caspers boss brilliantly. When pushed to far some very inspired and comic results transpire.
You will want to eat after seeing this , even with popcorn in you.
I already plan to buy this when it is out on dvd/blu ray
