Jiro Dreams of Sushi

This was like the Bill Cunninghmam doc but with sushi. Sujan and I really liked it.

The film looked incredible, 85-year-old Jiro Ono is a fascinating dude, the history was interesting, and the 80 minute run time was perfect. I'd love to see an update on this family in 20 years or so to see how Jiro's son is faring after he takes over - or maybe he won't because maybe old Jiro will still be plugging away.

As I was watching this I couldn't decide if I was happy or sad that Sujan didn't know about Jiro when we were in Tokyo back in 2006. I would have loved to have eaten at his restaurant but it would have cost us a pretty penny.
