Doug and Caren talk over the significance of food in film and TV, whether in a ‘food film’ proper, a scene, or a TV show. After Caren tells us a bit about the Indy 500 prep and the joys of succotash, we get into the endless appeal of food movies.
How does food reflect the nature of man as a rational animal? What does it do to ground film in the lived experience of daily life? How is the status of food raised and restored to its proper place through art?
Our Top 10 Food Movies allow us to get into some particular films in the last third of the show.
