So Jiro Dreams of Sushi is a documentary about a guy who is really, really good at making sushi. But wait, bear with me, because it is also the best damn documentary about a guy who is really, really good at making sushi that you will ever see.
It's actually a little inaccurate to call Jiro "good" at making sushi; he's arguably the best. Probably because he's an 80 year old workaholic who doesn't know how to do anything other than be a completely badass sushi chef. The documentary (in Japanese, so subtitles) chronicles day-to-day life at his absurdly specialized and artsy sushi-only restaurant in Japan, and the son he's training to take up the helm.
If you like sushi, this is a great look into how much goes into the really good stuff, and even if you don't, it's a totally fascinating look into a crazy octopus-massaging (yeah, they do that) world you probably never imagined. And beyond the whole sushi thing, the cinematography is just wonderful. It's a tight little film at just under 90 minutes, and you can catch it on Netflix Instant. [Netflix]
