Dog’s Movie House: “The Menu” A Sharp Comedy Skewering Pretentious Food Culture And Compelling Thriller All In One!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a confession: I’m not a big fan of the current foodie culture. There seems to be a constant game of elitist one-upmanship in terms of holier-than-thou analysis of what the food means to the environment, as if by partaking in such a unique item makes you a better person than the fools who partake of the simple cheeseburger. Pricey and pretentiously annoying, aspects of this type of foodie culture have become the new avenue for cultural elitism. This is the subject that the makers of the movie “The Menu” skewer with much delight, all the while creating a compelling thriller featuring outstanding performances and some unique twists and turns.
