Streets next Tuesday
Joe Maggio’s Bitter Feast makes its DVD debut January 4. I know, it kind of snuck up on us quietly, too. Just consider this a friendly reminder!
James Le Gros, Joshua Leonard, Amy Seimetz, and Mario Batali star.
Synopsis: A food critic can dish it out, but can he take it? Revenge is on the menu for notorious blogger J.T. Franks (Leonard) when he publishes a rumor which leads to the demise of TV chef Peter Grey’s culinary empire. Grey (Le Gros) kidnaps the writer, confines him in a remote cabin and presents him with a series of deceptively simple food challenges – from preparing a perfect egg over-easy, to grilling a steak precisely medium rare – punishing him for anything less than total perfection. Bitter Feast is an exploration of the creative impulse gone tragically and ferociously awry. Indie horror icon Larry Fessenden and renowned chef Mario Batali co-star in this tense shocker, which is served up with wicket wit and savory flair.
