Boiling Point

Boiling Point ★★★★

If you fancy one-takes and seeing people stressed out, you're gonna love this.

Filmed in a single take, this provides an up-close look at the goings-on within a restaurant kitchen led by its head chef played by Stephen Graham. I couldn't help it but Graham looks like a fusion-ha of Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton. Much of this feels completely authentic, from the moments of chatter among the staff to some absolutely despicable patrons. While its single take approach didn't fully wow me, it's certainly very admirable. This was a great film, though I didn't like the ending as it came across as just too much misery porn for my taste.

Respect to all the waiters out there.
