"Hiro Dreams of Sushi." If you love wine and food, which I believe most of you probably do since you're on these forums, this is a fantastic movie. It is about a chef in Japan who is considered to be the best Sushi chef in the world. It's a documentary, so not action packed of course, but fascinating


Thanks! It's in my Netflix queue.
Two more for consideration . . . "Jeff Who Lives at Home" and "Lars and the Real Doll."

I can't do justice to "Jeff Who Lives at Home" but it's a touching flick about a guy who has kind of lost his way in life but ultimately finds redemption.

"Lars and the Real Doll" is a hilarious movie about a lost soul in a small town who has ordered a "Real Doll" (e.g., pleasure doll) and seems to believe that this doll is in fact a real live person. The community rallies to support Lars in his delusion, and the shenanigans begin as he struggles to define the fine line between his imaginery life and the real life and real people around him

tanglenet . . .I hate to admit this but until you said it, I don't think I was aware that it was Ryan Gosling. I saw the movie before he really started to pop up everyone so I assumed Lars was a newbie actor (which perhaps Gosling was back then). I need to watch this again . . . but agree his performace was terrific and refreshingly different from the action genres he's been in more recently
