Jiro Dreams of Sushi

One of this year’s best documentaries profiles Jiro Ono, the 85-year-old Tokyo chef whose 10-seat restaurant (that serves one dish, a $300-a-plate “chef’s recommended special course” of sushi) books months in advance and has become a world-renowned foodie destination. But Jiro Dreams of Sushi isn’t just about mouth-watering close-ups and Food Channel-style logistics (though there’s plenty of both); it’s about the discipline of a man who has dedicated himself to achieving perfection, and continues to strive for that unattainable goal.
