Review | The menu serves up a climate pie with a roulade of desperation… and it’s SCARY!



Anya Taylor-Joy is one of my favorite actresses today. All of his projects have a stamp of guarantee that few Hollywood talents can offer. From her appearance in ‘A Bruxa’, through ‘Fragmented’ to her arrival in ‘O Gambito da Rainha’, Anya has had a brilliant and successful career.

And thriller ‘The Menu’ is no different. Even surrounded by other talented Hollywood stars, such as Ralph Fiennes and Nicholas Hoult, the actress stands out and delivers an extremely tense and disturbing performance. After all, the protagonist is struggling here.

The scenario written by Seth Reiss and Will Tracy uses few elements to make a very dense broth. Yes, I will be using several infamous food metaphors throughout this review. And I hope you enjoy them.

The story follows a young couple, Margot (Anya Taylor-Joy) and Tyler (Nicholas Hoult). She is a simple girl, and it is a millionaire who takes her to a desert island while waiting to eat at the restaurant of a renowned chef (Fiennes). Everything seems very sophisticated and glamorous at first, but soon Margot begins to notice that behind the kitchen hides a dark secret which is revealed in each of the amazing dishes served. But will they survive until dessert?

Take the time to watch:

“The Menu” is one of those hard-to-digest movies that takes you on a twisty journey without needing a lot of ingredients. And with sharp dialogues and desperate situations, the suspense creates a roller coaster of sensations over a little over 1h40 of production.

Can you imagine the thrill of watching the construction of aesthetically beautiful dishes in the best Masterchef style mixed with a very sharp storyline that weaves in social criticism and brings surprising twists? This is ‘The Menu’.

The film subverts all expectations and traces a successful path as it works with each of its protagonists and develops them brilliantly, thanks to the talent of the actors. Besides Anya, Ralph Fiennes is as scary as his “Harry Potter” Voldemort. Maybe a little crazier.

Much of the film’s success rests in the mind of director Mark Mylod, who helmed the comedy “What’s Your Number?” and the “Succession” episodes. It creates a sophisticated look with suspense, which terrifies even in an extremely glamorous environment. It’s a visual treat, while giving you a bit of indigestion. After all, it’s so tight you can practically cut it with a knife.

Finally, ‘The Menu’ is one of the most pleasant surprises of a year that has been great for fans of suspense and horror films. He serves a climão pie with a roulade of pleasure and despair. And it’s DELICIOUS. All flavors and sensations are explored here, and the viewer can enjoy them with pleasure. In the end, there is this taste of wanting more.

I saw the film at the Rio Film Festival, and it officially hits national theaters on November 17th.
