Chef Review
Open Road Films

There are some movies that feel personal because of the relationship the writer, director or actors have to the material. 'Chef' -- written, directed and starring Jon Favreau -- doesn't just feel personal, it feels like it's ripped directly from the pages of Favreau's subconscious diary. While it's a charming enough indie film about the connection between professional and personal passions that also serves as a fascinating look inside the psychology of a major Hollywood director.

We saw the trailer for Dustin Hoffman's directorial debut 'Quartet' a little over a month ago, but things have been quiet since, odd for a film that may have a chance at a little gold this award season.

How has Dustin Hoffman not directed a movie until now? The 75 year old two-time Oscar winner is a genuine living legend and one of the best actors of all time, so why he chose to wait until his twilight years to step behind the camera is beyond us.
