I Like Killing Flies

i like killing flies poster Brother in law Bob said that I Like Killing Flies is the bomb.  What about Bob you say?  Well, he’s a fine father to my nephews, and a ferocious foodie.  Given the latter, I just had to check this one out.  Much to my delight, the library has the film, which according to the blurb on the cover is a Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize Nominee.  Serious cred for shizzle.

Gritty and genuine feeling, the film has the ambiance of a meal at South Street staple Pete’s Diner.  It chronicles Kenny Shopsin, his dining establishment, and the cast of characters populating his universe.  Mr. Shopsin is by turns delightfully philosophic and crusty.  In fact, he is the inspiration for the classic Seinfeld character the Soup Nazi.  If the essence of cool is making something out of nothing, then Mr. Shopsin has definitely got it going on, as he is apparently capable of generating nine hundred dishes with limited ingredients and space.  This one is culinary theater of the most original sort, has a flavor all its own, and is recommended without reservations.
