Jon Favreau takes talents to Miami in 'Chef' trailer -- Video

7 April 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Judging by its trailer, Jon Favreau’s Chef will belong in the don’t-see-on-an-empty stomach genre, much like 2009′s Julie and Julia and 2011′s Jiro Dreams of Sushi

Favreau himself plays the title chef who is struggling to agree on a compromise with the owner (Dustin Hoffman) of his L.A. restaurant. So, naturally, he ditches the restaurant and brings along his ex-wife (Sofia Vergara), his friend (John Leguizamo), and his son to see what Miami has to offer. And we get to see a lot of food in the process.

Chef, which also stars Scarlett Johansson and Robert Downey Jr., »

‘Chef’s’ Jon Favreau: ‘I Shoot Food the Way Michael Bay Shoots Women in Bikinis’

8 March 2014 5:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Austin – From the moment he stepped onstage at the Paramount Theater, Jon Favreau was looking to entertain. “Chef,” the film he wrote, starred in, co-produced and directed, opened the 2014 South by Southwest Film Conference and Festival Friday night, with all but a standing ovation.

“I shoot food the way Michael Bay shoots women in bikinis,” Favreau told Variety at the after-party, held at Mohawk, several blocks from the theater. Prior to the screening, Favreau (pictured) and the cast dined at Franklin’s barbeque, a famous Austin barbeque joint, which makes a cameo in the film, as does musician Gary Clark Jr., who was deep into his second hour of a live performance.

The movie takes place in Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans and Austin, follows a chef (Favreau) as he quits his job and travels cross country in a food truck with his son (Emjay Anthony) and his sous chef (John Leguizamo).

Tim’s Vermeer

15 February 2014 11:32 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Tim’s Vermeer

Directed by: Teller

Documentary

Running Time: 1 hr 20 mins

Rating: PG-13

Release Date: February 14, 2014

Plot: Inventor Tim Jenison strives to replicate a painting by Johannes Vermeer, using optical technology that might have been lost in time.

Who’S It For? Everyone, and absolutely not just those who know art.

Overall

If 2013 was in particular a year of lone survivors, with sole characters persevering with only their minds and spirits through challenging conditions, Tim’s Vermeer is a calming yet fitting coda to these tales. Though without the essential element of dramatic tension that carries films like All is Lost and Gravity through events that feature only one human being, the goal of Tim and his painting project, that of fully recreating a full Vermeer painting dot-for-dot and particle-by-particle, feels within this film to be no less ambitious than that of survival.
