44 – Tampopo (1985)

We watched the first ramen western: 1985’s Tampopo.

Sophie & Mitch discuss this spectacular genre-pun film, with all its food-related glory. We talk about how food can be intimate – in lovely or icky ways. Also learn about some delightful ramen history & our inspiring trip to Tokiwa Ramen.

And here’s that How to Eat Ramen video.

42 – Waitress (2007)

Let’s start 2019 fresh with 2007’s Waitress.

Sophie & Mitch discuss all the complexities of this simple little film about a waitress with an abusive husband, imaginative pies, and a bun in the oven. We question the subjectivity of stories, wonder about the process of pie-making, and we explain the tragic meta-text surrounding this movie.

39 – ShakespeaReTold: Macbeth (2005)

Macbeth the chef! It’s the 2005 BBC made-for-TV-movie ShakespeaReTold: Macbeth.

Sophie and Mitch watched the James McAvoy starring modernization of The Scottish Play – this time set in a Michelian-star restaurant. We discuss how it works (or doesn’t) as a Shakespearean adaptation. We also pitch our own modern food-related versions of the Bard’s work.

Time to dive into one of the few food-film-franchises, beginning with 2009’s Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

36 – Free Birds (2013)

Join us on an adventure to stop the first Thanksgiving in the time-travel turkey movie Free Birds (2013).

Two modern turkeys travel back to 1621 to stop the pilgrims from eating their ancestors and to save all of turkey-kind. Yeah. It’s a weird movie. Sophie & Mitch dissect all this weirdness, these anachronisms, and all of our own misconceptions about Thanksgiving in this holiday-ish episode.

35 – Flavors of Youth (2018)

Let’s look back for simpler times, but let’s do it with the 2018 internationally released anime anthology film: Flavors of Youth.

Sophie & Mitch break down each of the three chapters of the film and how they address (or don’t) the Chinese idiom “yi shi zhu xing” [clothing, food, housing, transport]. We also talk about the issues with titling, expectations, and our conflicted feelings towards this gorgeous film.
