    There's a recipe for chicken played on a tape that particularly strikes me here. It narrates the preparation, the rubbing of spices, as a sensual act, one where by the end, the cook is "practically engaged to the chicken".

As someone who memorized The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock in high school, movies make me smile!
