El Bulli: Cooking in Progress

Jennie Kermode @ Eye For Film

  • Excerpt: Beside the village of Cala Monjoi on the Costa Brava, at the end of a notoriously dangerous road, lies El Bulli, the world’s most famous avant garde restaurant. Here, guests who have waited months for a reservation stay for an average of three hours and consume an average of 35 dishes each. Each of these dishes, small though it may be, is painstakingly created, designed to provide the perfect combination of flavours, textures and ‘magic’. Each year some 200 new dishes are added to the menu. This documentary looks at what goes on behind the scenes.

Shark Night

The Whisperer in Darkness

Sean Axmaker @ Videodrone

  • Excerpt: It is rather talky and not particularly scary or tense, but it is filled with a Lovecraftian sense of dread, of worlds beyond comprehension and a conspiracy of epic proportions.
