Peter-Meehan-Twitter.jpgLucky Peach editor Peter Meehan reflects upon how food is depicted on film, identifying two movies as particularly influential: Chungking Express and The Blues Brothers. In the latter, two specific scenes revealed the sometimes-exclusionary nature of restaurants, contrasted with the sense of community sometimes that happens there. Writes Meehan: I wanted that experience of going into a place and having them know what I was about to order... I wanted be a regular before I knew it was something to be." [National Post]
