Film review-Chef

Director John Favreau brings together an all-star cast including Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, and Sofia Vergara for his deliciously entertaining film Chef. While the story itself is heartwarming and engaging, it’s the mouth-watering food that steals the show. Favreau’s passion for the project is evident, as he went method in preparation for his role and even worked in a busy kitchen in Los Angeles under the guidance of the person who launched the food-truck revolution, Roy Choi, who is also a co-producer on the film.

Favreau delivers a standout performance as Carl Casper, a semi-celebrity chef who, after receiving a harsh review from a renowned food critic, finds himself searching for a new path in life. Together with his ex-wife (Sofia Vergara) and son (Emjay Anthony), Carl embarks on a cross-country journey in a food truck, rekindling his love for cooking and his bond with his son.

Filled with heart and humour, Chef is a refreshing departure from the summer blockbuster formula. While it may not have the biggest marketing budget, Chef is a cinematic gem that is not to be missed. But be warned, you’ll want to eat before seeing it!

Hitchcock has been promoted as a behind the scenes look at the production of Psycho, but20130207-145740.jpg it’s nothing more than a movie based on speculation and guess work. What follows is a complete mess of a movie that comes across as a GCSE drama group, trying their best.

Anthony Hopkins plays the famous master of suspense and is stuck in a fat suit and the least convincing facial prosthetics, since a 1960’s episode of Doctor Who.

It opens with Hitchcock’s relationship with the public, it then quickly turns into a look at Hitchcock’s private life, which has seemingly just been fabricated by the makers of the film.There’s a scene where Hitch watches Vera Miles (Jessica Beil) undress, through the Norman hole. He also leers at women through a window and has a “special” collection of 8×10 photos. We’re told that Alma (Hellen Mirren) made invaluable contributions to her husband’s work and that they saw each other as collaborators and had equal respect for each other. They then show her to be an attention-starved woman, who is considering an affair with studio hack, Whit (Danny Huston).

Those looking for an interesting biopic into the man’s life, will be bitterly disappointed. It’s interesting that the film makers weren’t allowed to use a frame from Psycho, I believe they weren’t even allowed to use the soundtrack, the famous shower score is the Danny Elfman remix, from the 1998 Psycho remake. It’s also interesting that Hitchcock’s daughter doesn’t feature, she isn’t even mentioned. Wait for this to come on TV.

Hitchcock is released in the UK on February 8th
