‘Jiro Dreams of Sushi’

Why: Jiro Ono is 85 years old. He still works at his sushi bar—10 seats, located in a basement next to a Tokyo subway station, recipient of three Michelin stars—every day. His commitment to his craft—to being a shokunin, to striving for impossible perfection—is complete. “It has to be better than last time,” Jiro says of his sushi, and he means every time, day after day after day. The filmmakers behind this documentary show this truth in everything that Jiro says and does, in every glossy and yielding piece of fish shown, in the important matter of rice. You must see Jiro Dreams of Sushi. (See Movie Times)
