Jiro Dreams of Sushi 
Jiro Dreams of Sushi review
4/4 stars

"Always look ahead and above yourself. Always try to improve upon yourself. Always strive to elevate your craft." One of many wise quotes from Jiro Ono. The documentary focuses on a masterful sushi restaurant owner/chef named Jiro and his eldest son Yoshikazu. As a self-confessed sushi lover and sucker for well directed documentaries, this reviewer had to see this. It shows the history of Jiro's family history and search for perfection of his craft. The details of Jiro's method of managing the restaurant were so detailed and highly regarded by critics which instills customer satisfaction. One sample would be creating the sushi depending on the gender so the orders would be synchronized and positioning it to left or right handed customers. The music was elegant which matches the manner Jiro conducts himself in his business. Its screenplay was surprisingly one of the best for its genre with lines: “Love what you do, never complain about your job.” "“Studying hard doesn't guarantee you will become a respectable person. Even if you’re a bad kid, there are people like me who change…Always doing what you are told does not mean you’ll succeed in life." "Once you decide on your occupation... you must immerse yourself in your work. You have to fall in love with your work." and "Each time [a guest tastes my sushi] it needs to be better than the time before." Themes of perfection, dedication, change, respecting resources, fatherhood and love of your job were emphasized. Obviously, Jiro Dreams of Sushi is one of the underrated documentaries that will not only make you crave for sushi, but also learn some life related tips to be a good well rounded person.
