Giving Thanks For Film Food

As you Americans and company dive head-first into your Thanksgiving dinners and celebrations, spare a few moments from setting the table, stuffing the turkey, and whatever else, take a little time to relax for a moment to browse this quick cinematic last-minute check-list.


*****

I’m sure the food will be in abundance for many, but spare a thought for those whose food supply perhaps may be less fruitful, and even used as currency.
Delicatessen (1991)
*****
You could store store away your scrumptious pies in the refrigerator, you can always warm them later – dependent on the filling and the pastry of course. Delicious I’m sure.
Waitress (2007)
*****
In spite of violent struggles with your employers or colleagues, a troubled family, far too much running for young legs, and having waffles make ends meet, please, please don’t give up.
Rosetta (1999)
*****
Choose a good, fine wine, with plenty of history and life, preferably from a delicious Pinot grape, but no fucking Merlot. And do not chew gum.
Sideways (2004)
*****
Embrace in rich, continental indulgences, enjoy the sweet little luxuries and decadent treats. Make do with chocolate if you cannot get Juliette Binoche.
Chocolat (2001)
*****
Try to stay calm and not have some kind of glass-smashing tantrum if you can’t have what you particularly want to eat.
Five Easy Pieces (1970)
*****
Ugly, oafish behavior does nothing to ease the ambiance of a large gathering around a table of food. Behave, or you might be on the menu.
The Cook, the Thief, his Wife, and Her Lover (1989)
*****
You will need plenty for the turkey, plonk some on your vegetables, and likely you’ll require some for your desserts, it can be used for all sorts – so do not forget the butter.
Last Tango in Paris (1972)
*****
Show your true gratitude to those that have taken you in, sheltered you, to those that have shown true acts of kindness and self-sacrifice. Buy a lottery ticket too.
Babette’s Feast (1987)
*****
Even if there is some crazy stuff going on around you, no matter how much is real or imagery, just goof around, explore your nourishment, and have a lot of fun. Just mind the chandelier.
Daisies (1966)
*****
Happy Thanksgiving one and all!
