Kurth told me about this movie about ten years ago, but I forgot
all about it until I happened to see the box on the counter at Video
Station a couple of weeks ago. Even then I had to wait since,
apparently, it is checked out frequently.
This movie — a kind of riches-to-rags-to-riches story about a
food critic slash chef — is every bit as great as K said it was all
those years ago. It is stunningly random, as if, at every juncture
while filming, the director considered the strangest next possible
direction to take. It really hit my funny bone, I recommend it.
