Eat Drink Man Woman

Dir: Ang Lee, 1994, China (8.6*)

Terrific Ang Lee film, the best movie ever about or with cooking. A traditional Taiwanese cook spend all day Sundays cooking a family dinner for his three daughters, who grudingly stick with this family tradition, while discussing their problems and dreams. The attention cook Sihung Lung gives to each dish is only topped by the cinematography - you can practially smell and taste the food. This film helped put Lee (Crouching Tiger, Sense and Sensibility, The Ice Storm, Brokeback Mountain) on the map worldwide. Great cinematography, expert filmmaking, touching without sentimentality.

This is our new template: ProBlogger.

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
