I wonder if Lincoln Park sushi bars will see an uptick in customers this weekend following Landmark’s screenings of David Gelb’s Jiro Dreams of Sushi, a documentary about 85-year-old Jiro Ono, the impassive master shokunin of Tokyo’s subterranean ten-seat Sukiyabashi Jiro who’s widely held to be the ultimate practitioner of the craft.

And how disappointed viewers will be if they expect to encounter anything remotely close to the impossible standard set by Jiro, whose minimal presentation of the most perfect products available (his rice supplier won’t sell certain varieties to anyone but him) and hypervigilant attention to detail (his apprentices massage octopus for 50 minutes before service) are the superficial concerns of the film.
