chef-5.jpgIs Actor/writer/director Jon Favreau's new film Chef "evil"? YES, says Eitan Kensky over at the Jewish Daily Forward. Or maybe only "vaguely"? Quote: "Chef is vaguely evil because it idolizes hitting the right notes. The film preaches comfort. Comfort is its aesthetic vision, its ultimate goal. The message the movie sends to young artists and creators is: Do what you know. Not, push yourself to exceed what you know. Not, discover the places you refuse to know." [JDF]
