I'm pretty conflicted. I'm a big fan of fish, sushi, and food in general, like seeing how stuff is made too. But I don't really like documentaries, and I definitely don't like the whole fancy food mentality, of "you eat what the chef prepares, you don't get to order" kind of mentality--it strikes me as pompous, or conceited. I pay for someone to make food that I will like, not that the chef will like and he'll allow me to eat. Nevertheless, Jiro is an interesting guy, and the movie is decent.

I'm not particularly passionate about sushi, so some of this documentary fell a little flat for me. But as a look at a person's life, it was reasonably interesting. Jiro is definitely worth taking a look at. I kept changing my mind on how I felt about him and his choice to dedicate his entire life to sushi - is it admirable, or kinda sad? Anyway, it was a nice, simplistic film, and a good look at Japanese culture.

An endearing documentary about a man absolutely devoted to his craft. If you like seeing what it's like back in the kitchen of a restaurant this one is for you. You also get a look into another culture (that is if you aren't from Japan).

A great insight into the sacrifice that goes into chasing actual perfection. Its all a little ridiculous, but thats what makes it so fascinating and oddly motivational.

On one level, it's a fine documentary about the ins and outs of making sushi, conveying the tireless, repetitive work, day in day out, for weeks, months, and years that it requires. But on a deeper level, it's about a very Japanese mentality; this stern, ascetic pursuit of perfection as a "shokunin", a mindset prevalent before WW2 partially lost today. (It's notable that Jiro was born in the 1920s) The same attitude that a master Japanese swordmaker had 300 years ago, when there were more Jiros.

You know you are deep into your craft when you dream about the food you make. This is what happens to Jiro Ono. This movie follows Jiro around his business and the wonderful Sushi that he makes. It may seem simple compared to other sushi concoctions but in it's simplicity an explosion of flavor comes out of that fish and rice combination. Jiro is and adorable man and his sons seem to have a good head on their shoulders...
