Please forgive me for what I’m about to type, because this kind of request always sounds like an imitation – but the less you know about the “Menu”, the better the party will be. What I will tell you is that the courses grow more steadily, and while at first the majority of guests think this is just a show-the “magic trick,” McTeer’s critic calls it. – it slowly, horribly tells people that this is a lot for reality.
The setup is sound, and the movie is spectacularly twisted. But “The Menu” also lags – once we get hooked on what’s going on, some of the fun goes away. And some settings – like a mysterious silver door – don’t really work. No problem – “The Menu” succeeds with a very game-changing cast, especially Ralph Fiennes, who is perfect as the mystery chef. Fiennes spoke in a soft voice that was somehow intimidating, and he looked at everyone with dark, knowing eyes. We do not completely understand why he’s doing what he’s doing, but we bought it because Fiennes sold it so well. Taylor-Joy, with her unique, almost unremarkable quality, was also a powerful presence, staring in bewildered horror at what was going on around her. And Hoult is seen as the increasingly annoyed Tyler, who remains undeterred by the growing horror.

Mylod sets things up with stylish flourishes, as the camera slowly pans around the dining room as guests begin to dine for the first time, focusing in and out of various conversations. The filmmaker also lingers lovingly with the various meals being preserved, and I advise against watching this on an empty stomach, lest you rush out of the theater while the footage is being filmed in search of the real thing. Products. And as much fun as I had with “The Menu”, it also left me hungry a little more. But this is a dining experience worth the entry for Fiennes’ sinister performance. Now check it out, please.
