    Jiro is quite interesting. Unfortunately, the director decides to tell a very shallow, flashy, superficial story!!! Quite disappointed!

    Conventional doc with fascinating subject matter. Provides insightful perspective on the life of a creative genius. However, even at 82 minutes, it feels long. I swear, they just go in circles repeating the same few points over and over.

    Really makes you appreciate someone who truly loves their job. It also really makes you want to eat sushi!

    We're living in a time of too many choices and an expectation to be able to achieve many things at once. This has its benefits but it also prefers the minor mastery of multiple skills as oppose to a complete mastery of just one. This hunger-inducing documentary makes a case for the latter. Jiro might well be one of the last true masters of a single craft.

    You will never see a film that devotes this much time, effort and money into capturing every single angle imaginable when you look at a piece of sushi. With slow motion, rack focus, panning up, down, side to side all while covered in clean even lighting. It's like the porn of the sushi world...no wait, I think I just described hentai. Now I am less hungry. Where was I? Oh right. What we have here is a documentary in the…

    Opened my eyes to a whole world of sushi making that I never knew existed. It's also largely about Jiro's pursuit of mastery of a skill, and is fascinating in that respect too.

    A wonderful doc that on the face of it is a film about an exclusive Sushi Restaurant is actually about self discipline, being perfect and a dedication to a cause, fascinating stuff.

    "I've never once hated this job. I fell in love with my work and gave my life to it. Even though I'm eighty five years old, I don't feel like retiring. That's how I feel."

    I want to eat my screen, because every piece of sushi looked delicious! Also, a great documentary about perfection.

    A short, sweet, and wonderfully interesting documentary about one of Japan's greatest sushi masters. Some really fascinating characters, absolutely gorgeous cineatography, and great editing.

    Jiro is the cutest little old man I've ever seen.
