I liked Burnt, and the word “privilege” never crossed my mind. I’m a black woman “of a certain age,” and I looked at him as just another angry chef on the verge of suicide. Loved the food porn!
100 Foot Journey and Chef are two other food and kitchen porn movies that I like as well. I’m in the process of doing a facelift on my kitchen, and am always fascinated by the backgrounds. Whenever I see one of these movies, I’m only looking to be entertained, not to have my political opinions stroked or to have Oscar-level expectations. Just entertainment. A bowl of buttery popcorn and a Chardonnay work just fine, thankyouverymuch.
