The Menu Review: Mylod Delivers the Goods

Jan 10, 2023

Nick Clement brings us his thoughts on the brand new Mark Mylod movie with this The Menu review.

A young couple travels to a remote island to eat at an exclusive restaurant where the chef has prepared a lavish menu, with some shocking surprises.
This is a twisted thriller which ultimately becomes a massive narrative pill that one must swallow in order for all of it to be taken seriously, but as an in-the-moment entertainment, director Mark Mylod delivers the deranged goods that come courtesy of Seth Reiss and Will Tracy’s feisty original screenplay which was produced by Adam McKay.
Ralph Fiennes is of course wonderful to watch as always, the game-supporting cast all came to play (always John Leguizamo POWER!), and the finale made me laugh out loud in terms of its food-as-a-parable-for-life mindset, but there’s a big aspect to this movie that doesn’t hold up under scrutiny, and that’s sort of annoying.
Less an indictment of the rich and more of an evisceration of blind hero/cult worship and the lengths some people will go to in order to fulfil their demented personal delusions.
The Menu, which quietly grossed $75 million in theatres worldwide last year, is currently streaming on HBO MAX.
