A Matter of Taste: Serving up Paul Liebrandt
Director: Sally Rowe
Stars: Michelle Micale
There’s nothing in this profile of the titular New York City chef that other kitchen-set do-cumentaries haven’t done before, but there’s still pleasure in watching a brilliant talent do his thing. If Liebrandt’s reputation rests on his unconventional epicureanism, it doesn’t make him the most unique documentary subject: he’s a perfectionist, surprise surprise. Still, the dishes he prepares are incredibly photogenic, and Rowe’s camera captures them in loving, succulent close-up.
