ELV note: There is one GLARING omission in this otherwise outstanding compilation of lip-smacking food clips from delicious movies. Can you guess what it is?
Answer: There is no scene from Tampopo — the greatest food movie of all time.
Why is it the greatest food movie of all time, ELV?
We’re glad you asked that question.
Tampopo is the greatest food movie of all time because it is utterly, completely, hysterically and unapologetically a movie about food and our relationship to it. None of the other movies (as gorgeous and appetite-inducing as they may be), can make that claim.
