Menus-Plaisirs — Les Troisgros

Documentary master Frederick Wiseman turns his unblinking eye on 21st-century fine dining in a fashion that fascinates, tantalizes, and occasionally appalls. His camera follows the Troisgros family as they shop, plan, prep, cook, and oversee service at their three restaurants in rural France (including one with three Michelin stars). Wiseman’s approach captures the care behind their work but also wordlessly interrogates the luxe fuss. -Lee Gardner
