Product Description

An angry foodie develops a taste for violence in this darkly witty thriller from writer and director Joe Maggio. Peter Grey (James Le Gros) is a chef who thinks he has what it takes to become a multi-media celebrity -- he runs a popular restaurant, he's the host of a cable television series called "The Feast," and he's in talks to design and endorse a line of high-end cookware. But while he knows food, Peter is also pompous, self-righteous and convinced he's smarter than everyone around him; Peter wants "The Feast" to carry a responsible environmental message, but his producer at the network (Mario Batali) just wants something that will attract viewers and advertisers, and pairs Peter with a pretty but thick-headed co-host, Peg (Megan Hilty). Peter is near the end of his rope when a well-known cuisine blogger, T.J. Franks (Joshua Leonard), gives his restaurant a scathing review, and soon "The Feast" is cancelled, the cookware company passes on its contract with Peter, and his restaurant closes due to bad business. Peter is certain Franks is to blame for this sudden flood of bad luck, and he kidnaps the blogger, determined to get some revenge, served bloody. BITTER FEAST was an official selection at the 2010 Los Angeles Film Festival.

HASH(0xa0d01e7c) out of 5 stars Torture movie that felt different until the end. Acting and plot were good, ending was lame. I give it a C Jan. 6 2011
By Tony Heck - Published on
Format: DVD
An uptight cooking show host and head restaurant chef (LeGros)loses his jobs and takes his revenge on the critic (Leonard)that caused his downfall. After a scathing review from food critic JT Franks causes chef Peter Grey to lose his job at his restaurant, and the cancellation of his show, Grey kidnaps Franks and the torture begins. It sounds pretty cheesy but Grey reads reviews Franks has given and forces him to do better in order to eat the food he is preparing. The movie is slow moving in parts but overall a pretty good movie to watch. I was going to give it a B- mainly because the torture movie genre is all the same, but the last 20 minutes strayed away from the aspects that made this seem different and into "really, they are doing this??!".The ending brought the grade down, it could have been so much better. I give it a C.

Don't buy the movie for Mario (which I did). If he didn't have the F'word for his minute and a half on screen, he'd have no lines. The gore was right at you. I thought the ending was ok, wrapped it up in a package.

HASH(0xa0d030a8) out of 5 stars A Bittersweet Thriller Feb. 16 2011
By Ben Wasden - Published on
Format: DVD
There are some things that I liked about the culinary thriller Bitter Feast. It has a pretty good plot, the acting is good all around, and there are moments of decent suspense. However, there are just as many things that I disliked. The movie runs 104 minutes, which is probably about 15 minutes too long for the subject matter. The movie moves too slowly. Also, I can usually sympathize with the killer in these revenge movies. But in Bitter Feast, I didn't think that just getting a bad review by a food critic deserved all the pain and suffering that was doled out to said food critic. So Bitter Feast didn't whet my appetite, but it isn't entirely bitter either.

It Was a Different Way To Go For a Movie. It Was Pretty Entertaining. I Like James Le Gros as an Actor. He Was Awesome in Phantasm II. I'm Glad I Have it in My Collection.
