    Intelligent, but too long. Some parts fail to connect with the viewer, others are just brillant. It looks better than most of the documentarys with a similar topic or locations.

    Fascinating and bewitching portrait of a master craftsman. I don't even like fish and it had me salivating.

    How does one truly understand another person's true love for something, or for someone? How does one explain a life of dedication to a craft, that to the uneducated eye, may seem like a simple fact of life? Sushi is one such thing; it exists in every country, in convenience stores, in cafeterias. It's a very simple dish that best represents Japanese cuisine to the foreigner. But to Jiro, it is his way of life. The reason for his existence.…

    A combination of Frederick Wiseman's procedure docs and the personal touch of Errol Morris, Jiro Dreams of Sushi is an excellent profile of a man who put his work above everything else. The only real problem is the music, which almost never matches up with what's happening on screen.

    I am sad that I will never be as good at anything as Jiro is at making sushi.

    There's a slight chance that Jiro is a real dick.

    Compelling documentary that touches on a huge number of themes, from mastery of a discipline to succession planning to Japanese culture and history and environmentalism.

    All from the perspective of running the best sushi business in the world.

    A fascinating look at dedication to a craft. Don't watch if you're hungry.

    A rather beautiful documentary about a man dedicated to making sushi and running the best sushi restaurant in the world in a train station in Tokyo. It's a fascinating study of Jiro and his passion, and of family since his two sons got into the business too and are helping to carry on their father's legacy. I loved it, Jiro is a legend.
