    Menus-Plaisirs Les Troisgros


    Weird seeing so much explaining in a Wiseman film. Everyone's always explaining something or going on a tour or being taught a lesson. Makes the movie seem more like a normal documentary than anything else I've seen from him.

    I'd be very uncomfortable eating at these restaurants. Not so much because the food is out of my league (it is) but because people would always be standing over me and talking to me about it the whole time.

    That's one of the nice things about ballet: no talking.

    Dare to imagine a walkable city with clean, abundant, and accessible public restrooms.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    That moment when DeNiro realizes he has to go after Waingro. He's not a romantic hero, he's a small-minded man of violence driven not by ideals or esoteric codes but by the basest of human urges.

    That moment when Pacino practically dances down the hospital stairs, gleefully fleeing his family for the sake of the chase, freed from the pretense of normalcy, from the obligation to care about anyone else.

    The tragedy and joy of learning that you cannot escape…

    There's a vibe here, but it's weirdly lifeless. Too much prestige, not enough noir, I think.
