The Menu - I wasn’t expecting too much from this one having noticed it tagged as horror in a review. Just can’t get interested in horror movies or being made jump for a couple of hours although I know most people do
Anyway, it’s not what I would call a horror movie at all thankfully, albeit not for the kids or the particularly squeamish I guess. I won’t give the plot away other than it centring upon a couple attending an elite chef’s restaurant for a very special meal. I would suggest you don’t watch trailers or read about it. Just gamble on it and enjoy it as the Chef intended.
Brilliantly cast, acted, directed with a great script. The cinematography and framing reproducing that high end restaurant imagery.
Performances all round were good but the Chef, Ralph Fiennes, was a perfect fit while Anna Taylor-Joy was again magnetic on screen.
As with any meal, it will depend on your taste and mood but it just hit the right spot for us both.
I do have a strange recommendation. I have never thought before to drink a glass of wine while watching a movie but I just think treating yourself by opening a bottle of your fave red or white for this one feels appropriate and I wish I had about a quarter of the way through this. Spoil yourself
