    Jiro Dreams of Sushi is apparently on Netflix now! I anticipate watching it sometime between now and the end of the long weekend, because hell yeah.

    Finally got around to watching "Jiro Dreams of Sushi." It was great. You'd think a 1 hour, 22 minute movie about an 85-year-old man making sushi exactly the same way every day would get old, but they do a good job of keeping it compelling through the use of visuals and music.

    The interviews are great, and by the end of it you feel a little sad for Jiro's son, Yoshikazu. The guy has been toiling away in his father's shadow for 35 years, and it's such a thankless job, he'll probably lose all his customers when Jiro dies. And on top of that, everyone has taken it for granted his entire life that he would do the same thing his father did, which... who knows? It almost turned into a movie more about Yoshikazu, actually.

    I've heard of this before, but never seen it. He also did one called "The One Percent." If this is good, maybe I'll check that out too.

    Hmm. It was good, I guess. A little meandering at times, though, and I lost track of what his point was. Mostly, some of these rich kids came across as totally out of touch with reality, or worse, just plain mean. Some of them were cool, like Trump's kid, the Grand Central Station dude, and the fencing guy. Anyway, here's the other documentary:

    That one was much more coherent.
