'Jiro Dreams of Sushi' (2011)
The 90-year-old Tokyo restaurateur Jiro Ono works relentlessly to serve sushi which meets his own super-exacting standards – for which his customers brave daunting prices and the near-impossibility of booking one of ten counter seats. Ono’s life and work are captured in this evocative documentary. The exquisite nigiri slices gleam with freshness, and the doc tells you everything you need to know about how to prepare the perfect serving of sea eel or gizzard shad.
