1978 - Who is killing the Great Chiefs of Europe? Robert Morley staring, mesmorized, at duck blood running out of a salmis press, is unforgettable.


Also, "The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and her Lover." A Peter Greenaway film.


The Wedding Banquet,-Funny and, Pieces of April which I really enjoyed

Kay Hwangbo

Here are some movies in which food figures prominently: "Babette's Feast," "Tampopo," "Eat, Drink, Man, Woman," "Scent of a Green Papaya"...that's all I can think of right now. Oh, "Fried Green Tomatoes"...


I'm sorry, I think I'll have to pass on the eel film. I remember eating at a Korean restaurant with a bunch of friends. Shelby was telling us about her new litter of puppies. I saw the server looking over. "Shh," I told Shelby, but she didn't understand why I was shushing her. Then the server came by to deliver our soup, and said, "You say you have puppies?" "Yes!" said Shelby, thinking she might have a sale. "They're sold," I said, but Shelby was from the south, and a bit slow to catch on. "Can I come see puppy?" asked the server. I kicked Shelby, and told the server, "They had rabies and had to be put down." Shelby gave me a funny look, but thankfully shut up, or else our next meal at the restaurant might have been Bul Gogi Pup.

Foodie movies? Let me think...Eating Raoul? What's Eating Gilbert Grape? The Grapes of Wrath? Like Water for Chocolate? (Although chocolate isn't technically "food". It's more like Heaven on a Stick.)

Speaking of food, I'm making Peanut Butter on Toast. Now THAT would be a great movie title!
