User Reviews

modern docu tropes ... low in meaty content.
31 August 2017 | by ma-conradSee all my reviews

This documentary is a very removed view of different cultures experiences with bbq. There is a pretentious somber soundtrack below the whole film. Even at times of joy and excitement, the live sound is muted. The director seems to want the audience to have a constant lukewarm emotion. The music is unnecessary to be constant thru the whole film. It tries to replicate the styling of other current food/documentary tropes.

Sterile is the only word that comes to mind. A sterile experience, story, cinematography, score and poster. The poster really shows the level of pretension you're about to experience.
