    The Eat the Rich subgenre has given us The Menu, which feels like a culmination OF that subgenre and you do keep wondering when there'll be a cannibalism course. But really it's the service industry workers vs. the Top 1%, and with its one reference to COVID, yeah, we all know what this is talking about. A high-end restaurant for the topmost elite is hosting a dozen rich fleabags who will get a lot more than they bargained for from Chef Ralph Fiennes (who is excellent, as usual) on this particular night. In comes Anya Taylor-Joy as a spoiler, a common girl brought along unexpectedly who could ruin everything. Well listen, twist my rubber arm here. She's accompanied by sociopathic foodie Nicholas Hoult who is kind of tapping the same vein he does in The Great, so lots of laughs in the cinema. Dark humor doesn't always translate that way, but our fairly full theater was really into it. It lampoons privilege, but also foodie-ism, while also making you crave for such a dining experience. I love food movies, and this one is as well shot as they come. So a fun thriller, with a fun solution, and while there are a lot of secrets around the room, there's no sense that we are being force-fed the answers. A lot of the realizations you make about people's connections and identities might only come at credits' close. 1 year 5 months ago

    Interesting and best to go in blind.

    Not perfect, definitely needed tweaking here and there.

    Worth a watch.

    Diabolical fun, every moment of Fiennes' delivery is just delicious.
    There's a possibility that the whole story ultimately doesn't has too much to say really; maybe you're better off if you go in expecting just to be entertained, which The Menu does, and not to have brilliant social satire (it is flat) delivered on your plate.
