Jiro Dreams of Sushi

I just finished watching one of the best movies I've ever seen. "Jiro Dreams of Sushi" is a documentary about the world's greatest sushi chef, about the cost and joy of striving for perfection in one's chosen craft. It's rare that I see a movie with a message which rocks me to my very core, but this is one of them. I wholeheartedly recommend "Jiro Dreams of Sushi" to all of you who wish to improve at what you do.

While I'm on the subject, here are a few movies I've seen this year I would like to recommend:

Paths of Glory (1957)
Yojimbo ( 1961)
13 Assassins (2010)
Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
Rope (1948)
Let's Get Lost (1988)
Bird (1988)
Le Samourai (1968)
District 9 (2009)

Indeed :D Truly puts the myth of easily obtainable mastery, perpetuated by contemporary main stream media, to rest. It ain't easy :)
