I was asked by my blogging friend and movie reviewer superstar, Fog, my two cents on the movie Jiro Dreams of Sushi. About a year ago, I suggested to Fog that he should check out this documentary, but he was a tad apprehensive about watch it. I don’t blame him for feeling that way towards this film. Face value, it looks like a boring documentary about a sushi chef. I mean, come on, who wants to watch a documentary about SUSHI. I totally get it, but Jiro Dreams of Sushi is more than just sushi. It’s a philosophical look into doing what you love and perfecting it.
I do the same thing over and over, improving bit by bit. There is always a yearning to achieve more. I’ll continue to climb, trying to reach the top, but no one knows where the top is ~ Jiro
Jiro has almost a Yoda-like quality in this movie. He is filled with one-lines that make you stop and think about your own self. This movie is more than just sushi.
For a better review just out Fog’s post. He does a better job describing the movie than I can. You can also read my two cents on his blog as well. It’s not thought-provoking, whatsoever. Actually, it makes me sound dumb. Oh wells.
