Burnt Review

Good

Strong characters help hold the attention as this overcooked drama develops, but in the end it feels so concocted that it's difficult to believe. While there's plenty of potential in the premise, the film becomes distracted by irrelevant subplots that try to stir up some tension but never quite manage it. And for a movie about food, the cuisine is simply too abstract to be mouthwatering.

At the centre is Adam (Bradley Cooper), a bad boy chef whose partying ways ended his high-flying career in Paris. After a period of penance in New Orleans, he moves to London to start again, with the goal of finally getting his elusive third Michelin star. Since he has alienated his friends, he turns to Tony (Daniel Bruhl), a guy who always had a soft spot for him and happens to be running a posh restaurant, which Adam quickly takes over. He rustles up some old colleagues (Omar Sy and Riccardo Scamarcio) and hires hot-shot Helene (Sienna Miller) as his sous chef. But his demanding perfectionism is keeping things from running very smoothly.

This set-up is ripe for both black comedy and soul-searching drama, and yet writer Steven Knight throws in irrelevant sideroads including a mandated therapist (the wonderful Emma Thompson), a bitter rival (a jagged Matthew Rhys), a couple of randomly violent loan sharks and a precocious little girl. Even though the actors do what they can to make every scene intriguing, none of these story elements add anything to the overall film. Still, Cooper holds the movie together with sheer charisma, even if his sudden transition from absolute tyrant to cuddly sweetheart isn't terribly convincing. At least he adds some surprising textures to his scenes, and indulges in sparky banter with those around him. And while Miller is solid in her thankless role, even she can't breathe life into such a thinly developed romance.

Burnt - Teaser Trailer


Restauranteering is not a profession that should be taken lightly. Indeed, it's less of a job and more of a way of life for Adam Jones, who has wanted to become the greatest chef the world has ever seen since as long as he can remember. He was just 16-years-old when he left school to go to Paris and achieve his dream; becoming a Michelin star chef infamous across the Parisian culinary scene. But his rise to success came much too soon, and it wasn't long before his dream began to crumble around him, beaten by a life of drugs, violence, and volatile behaviour. With many of his opponents thinking him dead, he returns to London a new man to reignite his passion, earn a third Michelin star, and open the best restaurant in the world. All he needs is a talented team behind him, who is willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

Eden Review


Very Good
Few things are tougher to watch, in real life or in the movies, than someone's heart slowly breaking. Such is the case with Eden, in which Billy and Breda Farrell's marriage lies in a state of quiet and deepening crisis. As the couple's tenth wedding anniversary approaches, Breda (Eileen Walsh) finds herself increasingly alienated from Billy (Aidan Kelly), and Eden sets out charting the trajectory of her despair. It's as if producer David Collins, of 2006's Irish sleeper hit Once, director Declan Recks, and screenwriter Eugene O'Brien (adapting his own play) were channeling Mike Leigh or John Cassavetes in bringing their marital drama to the screen.

Billy works as a repairman for the local phone company, and when he isn't shunting around town in his van, he's downing pints at the local pub, often alone, sometimes in the company of one of his drinking buddies, all single or divorced. Billy says cordial things to his wife, a word of flattery about her cooking or her new hairdo, but it's dawning on him, through the veil of his own denial, that he's a deeply unhappy man. Breda's in denial too, afraid to confront Billy about the widening rift between them, and the consequences of letting dark truths out in the open. Over bottles of wine, she confides her disappointments and loneliness to her best friend, Eilish (Lesley Conroy), and entertains fantasies, sexual and otherwise, that offer her escape.
