“I saw La Cucina at the Hollywood Film Festival and itu0026#39;s a great little movie that doesnu0026#39;t try to be something itu0026#39;s not. This film is a slice of life about the conversations and contradictions that make us who we are, and real-life conversations donu0026#39;t fit into perfect packages or tidy summaries like a high school philosophy paper. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWe all have contradictory thoughts/opinions/answers depending on how questions are framed. And Iu0026#39;m sure weu0026#39;ve all had long conversations in the kitchen that help us figure out what we think and believe, without actually solving anything (no matter how much we think weu0026#39;ve solved the worldu0026#39;s problems after a few bottles of wine.) u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMore importantly, many of us are great at giving advice to other people, but lousy at applying that advice to ourselves. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMore than simply an u0026quot;odd momentu0026quot; or scene transition, I thought the resident musician was a nice contrast to the complicated relationships unfolding in the neighboring apartments. He was like a non-verbal Greek Chorus, and a subtle reminder that maybe we should all stop talking so much about what we WISH WE WERE DOING and actually START DOING the things we love to do.”
