Jiro Dreams of Sushi screens tonight at 6pm at the Mayfair (with continuing presentations on the 24th, 25th, 27th and 28th). It's might be an understandably hard pitch to convince someone looking for an excellent night out at the movies that a documentary about making sushi is the way to go. Like films before it under the documentary umbrella though, with seemingly dull topics like cake baking or spelling bee's, Jiro is pretty amazing. A spellbinding truth-stranger-than-fiction tale of an elderly man who runs a little restaurant off of a subway line that has a three month waiting list, cost $300 U.S. a person for a meal, and serves the best sushi on the planet. Be warned and prepared to be starving and find yourself brainwashed and out at a sushi restaurant immediately after the credits roll.
