Hello. Mark Mylod’s movie ‘The Menu’ was released in 2022. We watched how the movie, which started as a horror thriller about a psychopathic chief, turned into a black comedy. In this content, I wrote the review of the movie ‘The Menu’ for you.

I wish you pleasant reading.

Note: May contain spoilers.

With a screenplay by Seth Reiss and Will Tracy, The Menu is one of the most entertaining and interesting social thrillers of recent times.

The film uses the increasingly popular world of avant-garde cooking to make its outrageously hilarious critiques of the world’s rich and elite.

I can say that the film is very successful in making social criticism. In addition, one of the reasons for the success of the film was that Ralph Fiennes, the leading actor, created unpredictable excitement, chills and laughter on the audience at the same time.

Fiennes plays celebrity chef Julian Slowik, who comes to live full-time on the uninhabited island where his luxury restaurant Hawthorne is located. The movie does not follow Slowik. Instead, it progresses from the point of view of Margot, who is invited by Tyler to attend a private dinner at Hawthorne.

Joining the duo on their journey are some snobby bosses, including an arrogant food critic, a former movie star, and people from the financial industry.

When Tyler, Margot and Slowik’s other guests arrive in Hawthorne to spend the night, things suddenly take a dark and surprisingly sickly turn. It soon becomes clear that Slowik’s plans for the evening are not as simple as the customers expected.

However, the presence of Margot, whom Tyler invites at the last minute after his girlfriend broke up with him, ruins all plans for the night. At least, that’s the case from Slowik’s point of view.

Margot’s arrival leads to a battle of wills between Slowik, with whom she has more in common than she thought. Margot’s unwanted clientele leads to scenes with lots of suspense, horror and comedy between her and the cook Slowik.

The actors of the film also clearly understand the task assigned to them, and as a result, everyone in the restaurant manages to perform both playfully and completely determined. Even knowing that they’re going to die after all the food service.

Meanwhile, Hoult’s character, Tyler, is ultra annoying. The fact that he invited Margot there knowingly that he would die, that he was aware of what would happen in the restaurant that evening, and that he sanctified the cook Slowik, is in a way that will challenge the tolerance level of the audience.

Chef Slowik’s multi-course meals are legendary and sell for $1,250 per person. At the beginning of the movie, “What, are we eating a Rolex?” We see Margot, who says and is not very impressed, teasing her lover Tyler.

While the personalized treatment each guest receives in the movie may seem spectacular at first and they feel like they are being pampered, the movie is clearly mocking these people. How Does? ‘Wealth corrupts people.’

From main course to dessert in the film, Slowik’s servings and punishments for diners become more and more bizarre and threatening. In the film directed by Mark Mylod, Slowik is a man so determined to turn food into art that he has forgotten his true purpose.

His aversion to the act of eating has long quenched his enjoyment of cooking. So much so that we witness Margot saying, “Even your hot meals are cold.”

On the other hand, the film may also examine the food industry, the exorbitantly priced small portions, and the engagement effort on social media. What’s unrealistic or weird, let’s say, is that customers in the restaurant accept death too easily.
