David Gelb

DVD Review: Craft, Dedication Proven in ‘Jiro Dreams of Sushi’

Jiro Dreams of Sushi

CHICAGO – David Gelb’s lyrical “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” tells the remarkable tale of a living legend in his chosen art form, the creation of sushi. Master chef Jiro Ono may be 85 years old but he’s still more committed to his craft than most people one-quarter of his age. What makes a man like Ono, one who has built a life on repetition of his talent, go from day to day? And why is he the best at what he does?

Film Review: Delightful Doc ‘Jiro Dreams of Sushi’ Pleases Crowds, Entices Taste Buds

Jiro Dreams of Sushi Film Review

CHICAGO – According to Jiro Ono, the intriguing titular subject of David Gelb’s documentary, sushi is a dish that must be savored.

Fat will not be tolerated on the fish since lean meat carries the essence of flavor, and it is within the simplicity of each morsel that a true depth of flavor can be achieved.

In the past few years, the comedian has skyrocketed to leading fixture in the comedy scene, creating hit scripts out of films like “Think Like A Man” and “About Last Night,” while taking victory laps in his lacking stand-up features like “Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain”. The big problem is that these projects don’t justify his comic potential.

  • The King of Comedy

    Something always felt a bit out of place for me in Martin Scorsese’s brilliant “The King of Comedy”, just released on Blu-ray for the first time. I couldn’t put my finger on it but chalked it up to it being thematically ahead of its time in its investigation of the cult of personality that defines modern entertainment.
