Favourites are four of my top first time watches from the previous month.
I could have watched these people do fascinating things to foods I've never seen before for hours more! Hours! There's something so mesmerising about the many gorgeous, lengthy scenes in the kitchen - the way everyone is in their own little worlds with their very precise tasks, the intense concentration on their faces, the way they move around without ever bumping into each other.
The documentary does become less engaging whenever we leave the kitchen for any great length of…
Hmmm. Probably my least favourite so far - Mae at her most muted. It's interesting to see her attempt some dramatic acting, and she is quite successful at selling her spiritual change of heart, but then she just stays at the same level for the rest of the movie. It's pretty dull to watch, honestly. (And it doesn't help that there are a lot of songs here, which all just seem to have a chorus and no verses, so their repetition does quickly drive you round the bend!).
