Close your eyes for a moment and think about your favorite restaurant. What’s the first thing that comes to mind? The food? The atmosphere? No. If you’re anything like me, the first thing you think about are the chef jackets. You’re not at a real restaurant unless the kitchen staff are all wearing authentic, white, pristine chef jackets. ‘The Menu’ at its core is a film that truly understands the importance of this. Is it a fantastic thriller with a twisting plot, great direction, solid writing and clever acting? Sure, we’ll give it that too, but the Clement Design chef jackets featured in this film are the true stars of Mark Mylod’s ‘The Menu’.
This is director Mark Mylod’s first film since 2011 as he is mostly known for directing episodes of shows like Succession, Shameless and Game of Thrones. This experience seems to be showcased here very well, as the film deals with many different subplots and character arcs. The way that these are all so well brought together in a relatively short run-time is masterful. One could say that Mark Mylod is the Clement Design Chef-Jacket of ensemble film direction? People are saying it.
