BITTER FEAST (2010, Joe Maggio 103 mins) James Le Gros, Joshua Leonard, Amy Seimetz, Larry Fessenden, Mario Batali. Peter Grey (James Le Gros), an overly zealous television chef, kidnaps J.T. Franks (Joshua Leonard), an influential and notoriously snarky food blogger after a particularly nasty review deals the final blow to Grey’s already plummeting career. A tense thrill-ride served up with wicked wit and culinary flare, BITTER FEAST is an exploration of the creative impulse gone tragically and ferociously awry.
