Three movies, plus two more

Here are three movies that I can recommend, starting with the best.

Jiro Dreams of Sushi - a great movie about the pursuit of perfection, one slice of fish at a time. Truly inspiring. Software engineers and scientists will recognize and identify with Jiro's aspirations.

The Angels' Share - a fun, laid back movie about a scotch whisky caper. Family fun. Plus the lead male character is just plain cute!

Somm - a somewhat intense movie about preparing for the Master Sommelier exam. I was hoping it would be another Jiro Dreams of Sushi, but instead it was much more about competition and study. On that front, anyone who has done a PhD will be a bit amused about the statements of hard labor - sure, it's more intense, but for a shorter period of time. Of the three, Somm was my least favorite, but it was still very good.


I'm also halfway through two more movies that I hope to finish soon:

Chef - Jon Favreau moves from being a restaurant chef to running a food truck. Great chemistry, good characters, delicious-looking food.

To Be Takei a surprisingly engrossing movie about George Takei's life and career.
