I thought I'd list my favorite foodie movies, and others I know about.
Feel free to tell me about ones I didn't list, or your favorites.
I won't discuss the plots--you can delve into that yourselves.
My Dinner with Andre
Woman on Top
9-1/2 Weeks (not so much a foodie movie, as it is food porn)
Um, is it hot in here?
Others that I've seen and thought were pretty good:
(BBC Series) Chef
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
One's that are popular but I didn't like:
Tampopo (basically a spaghetti western, Japanese style. Just too hokey for my , uh, taste).
Big Night (listed on several websites as a number one favorite. Somehow I found it forgettable. Perhaps I should watch it again).
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (despite Johnny Depp, it was just eh)
Titles I haven't seen yet, but will soon:
The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and her Lover
Eat, Drink, Man Woman (this comes up on my Netflix queue soon)
Like Water for Chocolate
Eat Your Heart Out
The Wedding Banquet
The Scent of the Green Papaya
The Mistress of Spices
Who's Killing the Great Chefs of Europe?
