      Haha, Salo and Sweet Movie both. Two tables I definitely would not want to sit down for a meal at.

    How is Eraserhead not on this? That is the funniest and strangest dinner scene in American cinema.

      For as surreal as that whole movie is, it's the scene with the little chickens that unsettles me the most for some reason. I mean, the rest of it's strange, but for some reason, that one just dances the line enough between strange and plausible that it strikes a nerve for me.

      I've got the soundtrack on Vinyl. It's even more strange when you've seen the film and supplement the audio with your imagination.

    Great, now I'm drooling. I especially love the inclusion of Babette’s Feast, pretty much the best movie about food ever. Also, I want that very meal in the In The Mood For Love screencap! D:

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

      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.

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

    I could see Ang Lee's "Eat Drink Man Woman" in a Criterion.

    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! :-)

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