Movie Reviews

Review by Amara Dumlao



Beaming from the moment “Chef” started, I was surprisingly delighted as the plot’s numerous courses were brought to the screen. The film has a simple enough premise, a disenfranchised Chef whose world is suddenly overturned resulting in the ownership of a food truck.  But this is not just a movie for foodies seeking delicious visuals of culinary fusion crafted by tattooed and rebellious mobile kitchen entrepreneurs. “Chef” is a 115 minute long smile filled adventure that reminds audiences of just how enjoyable going to the movies can be. A film with a seemingly limitless number of themes, “Chef” overcomes obstacles and tackles generational differences; he also travels, parents, and discovers social media all while creating impressive cuisine.

The characters are complex with relationships that are complicated and tangled. But what astounds is how effortlessly all of these themes are wrapped up into a film that is more than just palatable- it is delicious. Obviously a passion project for Writer, Director, and Lead Actor, Jon Favreau, “Chef” does what any seasoned actor would want from a film, it provides an opportunity to bring more to the screen. And as Chef Carl Casper Favreau excels, crafting a balanced character who tackles challenging long term decisions while also exposing subtle, and not so subtle, flaws.

feeds us such a filling story that summer filmgoers may even go back for seconds.
