Don't Thank Me Until You See It

There are other films coming out this year that I'm looking forward to seeing, but maybe none that I'm more interested in than Chef, the latest film from Jon Favreau. When it was announced last year, most people took it's premise (a chef who gets fired form his main stream job, only to open up an independent food truck) as being strongly autobiographical about Favreau' experiences being fired from behind the camera of Marvel's Iron Man series, only to follow it up with Cowboys Vs. Aliens, a movie devoid of any passion whatsoever. It also, for an independent film, boasts a cast of Favreau himself, Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson, Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo, Bobby Cannavale, and Dustin Hoffman (which proves, it's good to have friends).

I'm very much in the mood for a film like this. One, because I like watching earnestly made, genuine films. And two, Hannibal has very much turned me into a food voyeur. And this movie seems like includes a lot of close up of food preparation. I'd make an elaborate insinuation about food frying that comes off as marginally sexual here, but I've made myself half hungry, and need to grab a snack.
