The Menu | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Scott Tobias The Reveal (Substack) The film fares better as a tightly constructed exercise in horror, like a cross between the mechanized death of a Saw movie and the eat-the-rich grotesquerie of Peter Greenaway’s The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover. Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 19, 2022 Full Review The Menu | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Wenlei Ma News.com.au The Menu is an atmospheric, claustrophobic thriller with a killer ending, but manages to fall short in serving up a full-course of deranged delights. Rated: 3/5 Dec 10, 2022 Full Review The Menu | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Anton Bitel Sight & Sound Slowik’s slow-cooked revenge against social inequality, bad taste, cruel critique, culinary pretension and even ‘fast food’ cinema is unsettling and accusatory. Dec 7, 2022 Full Review The Menu | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Sarah Vincent Sarah G Vincent Views “The Menu” suggests that such fanatism to an ephemeral art which requires hard work and isolation could lead to a cult like atmosphere brewing insanity and resentment Jun 8, 2024 Full Review The Menu | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Avaryl Halley Movie Bitches There were so many moments I loved Apr 24, 2024 Full Review The Menu | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Andrew Galdi Movie Bitches Its A Solid B Apr 24, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews

First name L Deliciously flinty humor about the conflict between art and consumerism. Each deftly cast persona contributes to the main course; stay for the just deserts.
