Chef ★★

an obvious metatext about Favreau's saltiness over the bombing of Cowboys & Aliens in which he equates his work with Marvel to fine dining and, at one time, exciting, daring cuisine.

he also equates Chef to going "back to his roots," creating out of joy. ironically, there is almost no moment in Chef that isn't clearly in service of its own gear-turning.

also, a kid "geo-tagging" a food truck on twitter as a significant plot point is high on the cringe meter
