    What all documentaries should aspire to be.

    To put it simply, Jiro Dreams of Sushi is quite possibly one of the greatest documentaries ever created. From the brilliant shots of sushi to the in depth look into the inner workings of the most respected and admired sushi restaurants in the world, it never ceases to amaze me with every viewing. Definitely worth a watch if you enjoy sushi, want to know more about the mind of a master of sushi, or if you just want to watch a superb documentary.

    an exceptional glimpse into the world of sushi

    this is a documentary about obsession, compulsion and a samurai-like focus towards perfection in one's craft- all elegantly wrapped in layers of humility. this is a portrait of eighty-five year old sushi master jiro ono. It offers insight into his life and the inner workings of his prestigious humble little 10-seat sushi bar sukiyabashi jiro. his story is beautifully told and artfully filmed. recommended, especially if you have any interest in the culinary world.

    Raw Passion

    This is an excellent documentary about the master sushi chef, Jiro. Even at an advanced age, he still strives to improve his craft and attain a perfection which does not exist. His son carries the heavy burden of carrying on his legacy. This movie will inspire you in your own endeavors in life.

    Alternatingly Indulgent, Bittersweet and Poignant

    Posted .

    A lingering, sentimental look at the mentality and habits of Jiro Ono, legendary sushi chef and Japanese national treasure. The long, personal chats with Jiro and sons, plus an exhaustive investigation into every aspect of his business, are balanced by an overly generous dose of shallow focal-range, slow-motion food close-ups. Like many stereotypical wise men of his age and nationality, the old master also has plenty of sharp, stirring wisdom to impart. Though he doesn't come right out and say it, it's easy to see the parallels he hopes you'll draw between his dedication to the kitchen and the nuances of a rewarding life, and my breath caught in my throat on more than one occasion. A great vehicle for deep immersion into a very traditional Japanese culture, this is far deeper and more rewarding than it initially lets on.
