Friday Night Movie Review

Happy Friday!

If you, like me, love going to the movies, boy do I have a treat for you. JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI. If it’s playing at a theater near you, you must go see it.

Glenn and I met up with Matt and Sandy in Pasadena last weekend for this movie. We sat in this kind of traffic to get there. That was fun.

We were all super impressed with this film. We were also all super impressed with the refillable large popcorn for only $5.50 at Laemmle Theaters.

Jiro Dreams of Sushi is a documentary about Jiro, the world’s greatest sushi chef. It was fascinating from beginning to end and had surprising insights about family, food, hard work, and the growth mindset {my favorite!}. I would *highly* recommend this film even if you aren’t into sushi.

Some fun facts to know before you go see Jiro Dreams of Sushi:
1. It is a documentary. Don’t go expecting an action film or a comedy. Doc-u-men-ta-ry. Got it?

2. It is in Japanese with English subtitles. If you can’t either read English or understand Japanese, this will be a problem for you.

3. It is rated PG. There is a scene where one of the characters smokes a cigarette. Figured you should be warned.

4. No sushi you have ever had will EVER be the same. All you will ever want, for the rest of your life, is sushi that Jiro or one of his apprentices make. I am trying to figure out how to get myself to Tokyo for a taste of Jiro’s sushi this very minute.

If you go see it, which I highly recommend you do, tell me what you think of it!

Happy Friday, friendly friends!
