I was really fond of Jon Favreau’s Chef when I saw it earlier this year. The film makes a good case that not all narratives have to busy themselves with conflict and misery to be entertaining. Sometimes we just want to watch a guy cook some food and reconnect with his kid. The only real villain in the film is the idea that this guy had romantic time with both Sofia Vergara and Scarlett Johansson.
The Blu for Chef came out yesterday, but two of you can have a copy for free if you follow my very simple instructions. First, send me an email ([email protected]) with the word CHEF in the subject line. Second, put your contact info in the email’s body somewhere. Third, tell me what food you eat when it’s 1am and you’re too tired to feel shame.
That’s it! Good luck! I am picking winners Friday.
