Bravo. I had to keep reminding myself it's a movie.
Impressive! I had no real expectations going in and what a pleasant surprise. This film takes you for a relentlessly stressful ride and the fact that it's shot in single take makes me appreciate it a lot more. It flows so seamlessly from moment to moment and gives you so many different emotions in such a short period of time. The way it bounces between characters is brilliant and each character feels so real and believable.
As I go through this nightmare every time I make a Pot Noodle, I can relate to this film! It's a technical achievement but a bit overdone with the melodrama.
Like a 10-hour shift on a Saturday night after a week of overtime, Boiling Point (aka, Uncut Germs) is exhausting yet rewarding and feels amazing when it's over.
This film would be a fascinating study of the worst night of a chef's life if that's all it were. But when you take into account this 90-minute movie WAS FILMED IN ONE SINGLE TAKE WITH ZERO CUTS... then you realize you're witnessing something special.
One shot movie that drags a you along a night in a restaurant. Horrible customers, lovely customers, angry egotistical staff, loving caring stuff,etc, etc boring, predictable slug
If you are looking for a movie with great performances, and a "plot" where the twists are:"SPOILER"
Food allergies customer gets food allergie
Irratic chef that dissappears frequently is addicted to coke /in financial trouble
I hate it when people use the term "career defining performance".This is a career defining performance from our local boy done well. Such a well made film.
Absolutely fantastic. I felt my heart explode at the end.
