Best Feature Films About Food

It’s Oscar’s time and I thought I’ll mention an interesting article on movies about food.  Besides LOVE, a common theme among film makers is FOOD. Countless movies feature the subject, among them 2009’s “Julie & Julia,” starring Merryl Streep as Julia Child.

Paste Magazine has recently released a list of Best Feature Films About Food (below). Is your favorite movie among them? Do you believe some are missing? I would argue that on that list Chocolat was my favorite, but I guess that is a matter of “taste”. Here is the list:

1. Babette’s Feast

2. Eat Drink Man Woman

3. Sideways

4. Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory

5. Chocolat

6. Soylent Green

7. Like Water for Chocolate

8. Waitress

9. Julie & Julia

10. Delicatessen
