Summary: What an interesting little documentary this was. It's original, unique an one of a kind. You can't just take one persons word for it, you have to go see it on your own terms- Because this is something you won't regret taking a look at.
Summary: A great feel-good documentary. The film succeeds in bringing forward an inspiring story of success. It's a good thing the film also focuses on Jiro's succession, but some deeper personal digging into the mystery Jiro still is after watching instead of focusing almost solely on his weighty...
Summary: According to Jiro Ono, the modest star of Jiro Dreams of Sushi, a great sushi chef must be borderline obsessed or just plain obsessed with his craft to succeed. Clearly filmmaker David Gelb follows the same principals as Jiro Dreams of Sushi is heart warming, informative cinema that demands...
Summary: An interesting premise, but the film quickly exhausts the subject matter. One aspect of the film that is completely glazed over is the credibility of those claiming Jiro's sushi is so great. The interviewees are clearly biased and even intimidated by Jiro.
Summary: Peace of Art! Jiro is a live monument!! like the Parthenon, the Great Wall or the Taj Mahal! The words are poor to describe this man. Wise, smart, role-model....The directing could be a little better, more deep. You 'll see it and see it again and again.
Summary: The movie is completely fascinating and is very well done. The story it tells is a very extreme and unusual one. When you stop to think that a person could work 24/7 for 70 years only thinking about sushi all his life long, and imagine doing the same with your life, you will get a sinking feeling.
Excerpt: (My first impressions of the film after seeing it at The Crest in Sacramento with some colleagues and friends) 85-year-old Jiro Ono doesn’t just prepare ordinary sushi; he makes sushi with his soul.
Summary: How do you show someone who is a perfectionist and who spends his entire lifetime honing his skill at his chosen craft? Such commitment is hardly seen anymore, in our get-rich-quick society. This quiet film shows us such a Masterl. Wish I could have a bite of Jiro's sushi!
Summary: It's an interesting film, but halfway through becomes quite repetitive. While a lot is said about the craft aspects of making sushi, the process is never described in any detail from beginning to end, so we're left to trust in its complexity.
