Think the words ‘sushi’ and ‘documentary’ don’t equal ‘interesting’? You're wrong. Take a look at Jiro Dreams of Sushi.
While this film is ostensibly about sushi, it's actually about dedication to your work. Jiro Ono (that's him, pictured above) is an 85 year-old man who reminds you that you really don't work enough. A perfectionist of the highest order, his apprenticeships take ten years to complete. One apprentice, having completed his 10 year tenure, had over 200 portions of tamago (Japanese omlette) rejected, before finally making one that was acceptable. He was so happy he cried. The film is littered with stories like this, where sushi is taken more seriously than any conveyer belt sushi store could imagine.
It's hard to think of any, except maybe a bit more focus on Jiro's backstory, which isn't explored as deeply as some would like.
Engaging, understated and thought provoking. It'll make you reconsider the entire way you look at sushi. And you'll come into work fifteen minutes earlier the next day.
