110) Jiro Dreams of Sushi (2011)
A documentary on 85-year-old sushi master Jiro Ono, his business in the Ginza Tokio Subway station, and his relationship with his son and eventual heir, Yoshikazu.
8/10 – Simple and effective. There is no narrative, no big reveal, no twists, no key political message (although it does touch upon overfishing)… it just a great portrayal of Jiro and his work. Excellent musical score to accompany it, as for extended periods you are left to just watch Jiro and his team at work, with no commentary. An educating, interesting and hunger inducing documentary. Highly recommended.
