I don't often watch movies more than once. I don't know why but it's just not my thing. But, I recently watched Chef again and I gotta say it's one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. In fact, I put it up there with the best movies of last year I'm glad it is finally getting noticed by more people. I try to only tout things I really really like and this is one of them. Watch it and then listen to the Tim Ferriss interview with Jon Favreau.
I particularly found Favreau's reasoning for using old school black and white composition books for writing and drawing to be genius. He says he doesn't feel like what he puts in them has to be perfect since they aren't expensive sketch pads. But he also knows he can't just tear a page out because the whole notebook may come apart. There is so much wisdom in this little tidbit. He doesn't feel the need to be perfect but he also doesn't want to totally embarrass himself either. He tries to find the middle between creativity and discipline.
Oh, and while you are on Netflix watching Chef, check out the wonderful original series Chef's Table. We plowed through the whole series and I want more.
