  • It's rare to find an American movie that works so well structurally from beginning to end, including a second act that withstands the plethora of fast-moving action, and a climax that is satisfying and well earned. show more

  • There are enough plots here to challenge a Robert Altman, specialist in interlocking stories, but the director, Bob Giraldi, masters the complexities as if he knows the territory. He does. show more

  • As tension mounts through the evening, Giraldi cleverly sweeps in and out of conversations -- and brings it all together in a climax that is as hard to see coming as it is to resist. show more

    as perfect a movie as there has ever been.this sleeper of a movie has several stories and subplots all linked together into one seamless story. one of the most accurate "cooking" movies ever.the different tensions between the various characters reflect real life in so many levels. truly a cinematic masterpiece.
