The Menu ★★★½

First of all, this is hilarious and a good time, if you're into dark humor and satire, when it comes to comedies. It's not necessarily an air-tight story, and the characters will leave you with a lot of questions, but this also didn't bother me too much because I was too busy enjoying the movie.

Second, I couldn't help feeling this was pretty sharp commentary on the way the entertainment industry is functioning today. Critics dissecting every detail, fanboys who think they know everything and will scold you for disagreeing, regulars who don't actually care, people who will never be satisfied, and the vicious pressure of wowing the audience at all cost, when nothing will ever be enough - all of that actually taking the joy out of creating art in the first place.

Also, I just love Ralph Fiennes, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Nicholas Hoult.
