    Where is La Grande Bouffe? Surely one of the most remarkable food-based films ever made.

    I'm thankful that Love Affair or The Case of the Missing Switchboard Operator was included on this list... and that Salo was not.

    La Grande Bouffe isn't in the Criterion Collection, Martin. Even though Ferreri's Dillinger Is Dead is....which would have been an interesting inclusion, come to think of it....

      I think that movie almost outdid John Water's Pink Flamingo's in bad taste.

    I was thinking of the Ice Storm both the novel by Rick Moody and the film by Ang Lee, I even posted on Facebook as the movie and book of the day.

    The meal of strawberries and milk in The Seventh Seal? The meal at the country château in Smiles of a Summer Night?

    I think Still Walking and Secret of the Grain take the crown.

    For some odd reason, I get the munchies when I watch Toshiro Mifune eat.

    I dig the Johnny Walker in the screenshot of Daisies. They're my type of girls.

    Thank you for showing food in films, an underestimated cinematic subject...but how could you forgot to add at least ONE of many CC Italian films??? This is unforgivable! :-)

      Yeah I agree--Salo should have been included.

    If there is one film this list needs (and that Criterion needs to release) it is The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover.
