  • One of the film's best moments of deliciousness comes with the revelation that Yoshikazu, rather than his father, made the sushi that won the Michelin inspectors over; so much for working humbly in the old man's shadow. show more

  • David Gelb's thoughtful and wonderful documentary, Jiro Dreams of Sushi, explores the dedication of this humble, bespectacled man, and the Zen-like focus he has for his work - or, as many would claim, for his art. show more

  • It's torture to watch Jiro Dreams of Sushi - if you are on an empty stomach. David Gelb's documentary on Jiro Ono, the 85-year-old sushi chef whose Tokyo restaurant received three Michelin stars is a paean to perfectionism and crafty bit of food porn. show more

    Jiro is a brilliant sushi genious and I want more than ever to visit his restaurant. What a riveting documentary about a life of hard work, dedication, persistence, and, more than anything else, passion. Jiro\'s years of work and attention to detail along with a well-trained staff make his ********* world\'s best.
