/* ---- VIDEO INFORMATION ---- */

Alright, so The Menu is now on HBO Max, serving us up one heck of delicable dark comedy course. But uhhh… Can I substitute the salad for some fries? Anyway in this video we’re going to talk about the ending of this movie, our reaction and review, along with what it’s saying about those snooty foodies out there.

So with that out of the way, thank you for clicking this video. Also hit that like button and subscribe as it helps us out. I’m your host Jared. Now let's get into The Menu.

So essentially The Menu features this lavish, one of a kind restaurant, The Hawthorne located on a remote island, owned by celebrity chef Julian Slowik. Multiple courses, only the most elite can dine here, with it being $1,250 a head… But don’t worry, the tip is included in that price. We’re slowly introduced to the type of people that dine at such a high class establishment as one by one they arrive at the ferry and make their way to the island. A handful of tech bros, a washed up actor and his assistant, an older couple, food critic and the magazine editor who is working with her, and finally Tyler, basically a big Instagram foodie, you know the people constantly taking snapshots of their food, and Margot, his girlfriend.

On the island, they are guided about the grounds by Hong Chau’s Elsa, showing the guests that everything is grown, raised, specifically cultured, and handpicked from the island’s resources everyday, meaning the freshest of fresh ingredients in their multiple course meal. However, not only Elsa, but also Chef Slowik question Margot’s presence on the island and at Hawthorne. Almost a standoffish feeling, like she is unwelcome to dine in such class, even though she was invited as Tyler’s partner.

@knowledgetracker that's because you've got a crude/dark "sense of humour"; you, probably, also believe that hunting is "a fun activity", don't you?

@Marius Matei - it was hilarious. I guess it depends on your point of view. It was definitely a comedy. A dark comedy.

@knowledgetracker yes, it is a brilliant film; that wasn't my point! And, yes, I got the satire aimed at the culinary arts, but, in my view, that, hardly, makes it (the film) "a comedy".
knowledgetracker Aylar önce
@Marius Matei - it's what you call a black comedy. It definitely has dark humor. They're poking fun of the industry. There are lots of funny things. Like when the kid, who thinks he's some great critic, but really knows nothing about cooking, asks the chef if he was getting bergamot and the chef rolls his eyes and says yes. The movie is poking fun of all different types of people in the industry. It's a brilliant movie. If you're not a foodie, or are not used to eating very upscale food, it probably doesn't make sense to you.

My favorite moment was when Julian was making the cheeseburger, and then serving it to Margot, he was genuinely so happy, as soon as Margot left the restaurant, he completely changed his demeanor into a very depressed, sad chef...like he was reminded again of his misery. I loved this movie, the acting was 10/10.

The scene where Margot finally escapes, she turns around one last time to look at the crowd. Her eyes lock on to the wife. Notice the wife motions for Margot to go. I took it as she knew Margot was a victim in all of this, even with her husband, and wanted her to escape.. she mentioned earlier how she looked like their late daughter Claire... which implied she had passed away. and to find out it was Margot with her husband. The pieces clicked together… the look of guilt and disappointment on her face. The wife understood they had to die, even herself because I feel like she felt guilty for not realizing her husband was a perverted creep who was sexually attracted to their daughter, and probably hurt their daughter. Or maybe deep down she knew her husband hurt her daughter in some way and did nothing about it. I feel like that was her punishment and came to terms with what was about to happen. And seeing Margot escape gave her a sense of peace.

Their daughter probably offed herself after what "daddy" put her through. Which is why the wife didn't fight the end, due to guilt.

@Nia’s Creative Space I feel like people are constantly missing pretty important parts of movies then not being able to connect narrative dots because of it. Because after watching the movie I kind of thought the things the original comment is saying were obvious because of the scene you mentioned.

I think the fact they didn’t fight back at the end was telling. People who’ve had their lives handed to them, by legacy, by putting others down or deception is how everyone in this film made their riches. Not only were they not use to fighting for the things in their life, including their life itself, they were *incapable* of it. A room of sycophants and manipulators so coddled by using money and underlings to run, that when confronted with what real people experience, working to live, they were useless to their very core.

My Wife's Boyfriend
@Pat Fussy They sure can, but when there is no appreciation, when it is expected as a service rather than the hard work of people in the kitchen who painstakingly make those meals, is where things take a turn. Look at the bigger picture presented here and you will get a better sense of what is happening.

@Brandon Tsosie wtf r u basing any of that off of? At the beginning of the movie the sous chef explains that they dry age all of their protein for a certain amount of days (don't remember the exact number) so that pretty much destroys that entire theory. Plus Slovik's whole thing was making the most luxurious dishes (so he thought) and human flesh is some of the worst meats to eat

as a chef for 30 years, this movie really hit home on a bunch of different points. especially how the love of the craft can just slowly fade over time and it just becomes an exercise in ability. also, the sommelier is hysterical. just so ridiculous.

@Project Gaia the problem comes that as a chef you have to take this kind of stuff seriously. at least to a point. its how I make my living. its how I put a roof over my head and food on the table. at the end of the day, while I love cooking and it truly is a passion, it is also a job. a very tough demanding job. you are take criticism from people who most of the time don't know how to be critics. its can be demoralizing. I have learned to tune most of it out. At the end of the day though, the vast vast majority of cooks out there cant really cook what makes them happy. they can be happy with what they produce, but that's entirely different. Mentally its tough to keep going sometimes.

I just wanted to tell you that I really appreciate you, so please don't get any ideas from this lol Just cook awesome, juicy burgers or whatever gives you joy, don't become a chef by snooty, anal critic demand like he did. That's what did him in, the poshos who didn't really appreciate his food, and just paid to eat it for prestige. That made him loose sight of himself, lose his joy for his work, which is why he felt like he had to die with them. Cook what makes you happy, even if that's corn dogs, don't become cocky and pretentious no matter how much the snooty, fancy critics kiss your ass (remember they turn on you) do it for yourself, for the joy of it, and you'll be fine. That's the lesson in this film. It's food innit, it' just food, you're supposed to keep it simple, have some fun cooking it, and enjoy eating it, with appreciation and gusto, not take it THAT seriously.

Two thoughts I had were that Tyler intentionally replaced (not broke up with) his girlfriend because he didn’t want her to be killed, and he might as well just purchase someone who he deemed disposable. Another thing that struck me in the end was that any of those other people could have followed Margot out the door, but they didn’t, intentionally choosing to finish the meal by becoming human s’mores. This is one of those movies that just keeps you thinking, and I loved all of the food shots.

@Mike D they didn't choose to? Slovik actually puts it very clear when he said they didn't try to put up a fight and that they could've gotten away, then finishes with "something to think about"... Plus, that whole "we love you chef" at the end kind of hinted at the fact that maybe they did know.

Well that's based off of absolutely nothing. In fact, it's safe to assume he could've given two shits about who was gonna die considering he paid no mind to anyone else dying in front of his eyes and also paid an escort to come with him, unbeknownst to her that she'd also be dying.

It reminded me of Midsommar, in how an escalating series of initially minor violations of your social behavior norms slowly raises the terror level. When a person violates those norms in even a small way, it is unsettling and dangerous because you don’t know what other boundaries they don’t respect. Initially the rule breaking is amusing and exciting, but you soon realize you’re not safe. Also the ending was like Midsommar in how these passive saps let themselves be ritually burned.

This is what Midsommar tried to do. Most boring film ever that was. Boring and unnecessary cringe. Horrifying little, senseless, boring film, with no real depth, and tons of pretty vacuous acting. What was the commentary even? Oh cults are bad, lame, like we don't all already know that, boring! Nothing to do with The Menu. The Menu was as close to a perfect work of art as anything can get, it had tremendous levels of depth, human commentary and meaning, and not to mention legendary acting. Don't even compare the two please.

I watched this today with my daughter and was actually pleasantly surprised. I loved the cast, even Taylor, who is not a favorite actress of mine. As others said, I went into it thinking it would be some sort of cannibal story but wow, you can feel Julian's dispassion for his job. And that's what it became, no longer something he loved but something he just did well. I also liked how Margot, the only 'innocent' person at the restaurant is an escort, a profession that most people look down upon, probably every one of the guests would, but Julian deemed her worthy of living. That burger probably tasted amazing 🙂

Margo (Erin's) final act of ordering a cheeseburger was one of the best endings I've seen in a film. I've seen so many different "takes " on this scene and explanations for why it saved her life, but I think the message is rooted in one service industry person working for another service industry person for an affordable rate. Erin is a working class social servant who is only at the restaurant because she was hired by a super wealthy man. When she sees the photo of Chef working at a burger joint, it is the only picture that shows him smiling. She is able to understand this joy as only another service industry person can--the joy of serving kind customers who also are working class servants. As a lifelong public servant who -*-barely-*- makes a living, I relate to this on a deep level. I have worked hard in my field for over 12 years and because of my financial needs (medical, housing, etc), I have needed to find employment in a wealthy town in order to make enough. I work for rich elites who treat me like trash, but I am able to push past that part of my job and remember that I serve nature and the public as a whole before anything else. When Chef cooks the cheeseburger, he is cooking for a person in the working class who will appreciate and savor the food for the sake of the food itself. And beyond the incredible flavors of a well-made classic cheeseburger, it also fulfills the most basic human need: hunger. Because Erin is a working class person who has been forced to serve her entire life to survive, she has real hunger at the restaurant. She is hungry not only for food, but for life itself. By surviving and fighting for life, we become hungry for life in ways that the wealthy elite will never understand. Much like mortality, surviving gives music to the blankness of temporal existence on earth. When Erin savors and enjoys the cheeseburger, Chef is able to finally serve someone he respects after a long road into darkness from serving only the wealthy and losing his purpose. When she asks for it "to go", he realizes that she is not part of the Menu he created for that night and finally allows her to leave in order to finish the meal as designed. She is saved because she is the only person still hungry to live and eat. The rest of the group is emptied from the sheer uselessness of their existence and lack of experiencing need. I have a short anecdote from my own life that helps to summarize my analysis. In 2019, I moved to one of the richest towns in Vermont to work for a tree company as a climbing arborist. The company paid me $18/hour and I lived in a tiny apartment and rode my bike to get around. I barely made enough to survive because the cost of living in the area was very high. Eventually I made a few friends and one of them was the great-grandson of Irving Berlin. He had been given a nice house in the mountains by his wealthy father and his family had paid for all his expensive rehab (from drugs) and most everything else. He worked as a bartender in order to "get life experience" as part of the deal for getting a free house. He paid for almost nothing. One day, after seeing a movie together, we were driving back and he literally said (outloud) that he wished he "could suffer like me". He went on to say that he had never struggled or fought for money in his life and felt he was missing out on the experiences I had as a lower class person trying to make it. He said that he wished he could have the same kind of fear and anxiety around existence so that he could actually enjoy his life in a more holistic way. Needless to say, it took my entire self-control to stop myself from yeeting out of his moving vehicle. I never wanted to hang out with him again because it was the most tone-deaf, ignorant speech I had ever heard (since this occurred I have heard worse, unfortunately). But one thing stuck with me-- he truly didn't understand what it meant to live fully. He didn't understand the fight to survive or the joy of succeeding in small ways as you grow. Even though he will always have more material comfort and money, I have something greater: substance and drive. I have the flavor of life because I truly understand what it feels like to want to die from the suffering and then rise out of the ashes of that ruin and want to live. He can burn with the rest of the vile and corrupt wealthy classes. The Menu is one of my favorite films of all time because it was a true love letter to the modern serving class. It isn't for the rich. They will never understand or enjoy the flavor of this meal because it is only for those who have experienced the hunger.

Just to add - It's no secret that many people from the diaspora take issue with tourists who travel to developing countries solely to snap photos of impoverished individuals for social media clout or to prove their moral superiority (virtue signaling). Others go so far as to live like locals for a brief period, only to return home and boast about how the experience changed their life, all the while resuming their privileged existence. This kind of poverty tourism, where one can check in and out of destitution at will, is truly appalling. It's a spit in the face to those who live in poverty day in and day out. A life they could only dream of escaping, then to think their struggles are often used to grant the poverty tourist accolades, funding, and social recognition for their short time of willfully depriving themselves. It's an unjust imbalance in this life, and it's complete and utter bullshit.

as someone who recently lost a family member to suicide, the part where the chef took his own life genuinely struck an emotional chord with me and was a major turning point for the movie. This movie displayed the affects of suicidal thoughts in a humanistic manner.

I think this concept of the menu can be applied to almost the entire artistic and aesthetic based industry where we’re continuously drowning in capitalism and consumerism since nowadays people don’t really appreciate art anymore. Your analysis totally make sense.

In the end the chef actually comments on everyones behavior and how they didnt even try to escape by themselves at least once. There was the bit where every guy tried to run but that was simply because the chef legit told them to. Throughout the movie only Margot was the one who tried to escape by trying to call someone and then trying something different and then did. They were cooks, aside from that one dude who offed himself it seemed like nobody had a gun nor any kind of weapon. They just stood there or more accurately sat there while everything was going on. What made me laugh at the end was when it came to pay for the food and everyone was like "Welp Imma die anyway so might as well pay the man for the food and experience." And literally paid with the critic even having her meal paid by the magazine guy.

I loved this movie so much that it's in my top 10 list and steadily climbing. Margot is the only character to demand a specific food item where all the others just expected Chef to produce something new and amazing. In doing so she set off that spark of desire and temporarily making him love cooking again. No one in his career has ever done such a thing and in return gave her life back.

Incredibly beautiful story, one of my favs from 22! Loved the allegory of filmmakers and their connection to their art, and loved Ralph’s portrayal of an obsessed, cold chef. It’s a beautiful message to appreciate art for what it is, and not overly dissect and critique the minute details.

@Doctor Slayer facts and what i hate is that a lot of people refuse to understand on that level… either they have a short attention span, or just dont think and understand on a high level… even most movie critics dont even think on that level and i wonder how they even get a job as a critic when they dont even know how to critique honestly🤷🏾 This movie actually points stuff out like that in the industry for example the 2010 nightmare on elm street remake, many hated it but it did well in box office even with low reviews. So many people criticized it but then theres people like me, fans, that really took the time to appreciate the art, nobody is perfect, but nowadays you can see a little how a lot of people cater to what people say and it causes them to lowkey lose the love for the art they create themselves… you gotta understand that not everyone will like what you put out, its life but dont let that hurt you, forget them, keep looking forward, theres always gonna be those that do love you and what you do genuinely

After watching this movie, my partner and I were both craving a delicious cheese burger. The movie had left us feeling hungry and inspired, so we decided to go out and hunt for the perfect midnight snack. And I was really influenced by its message. It made me think about things in a different way and I couldn't stop thinking about it. I wanted to share my thoughts with my partner, so I turned to them and said, "Did you feel the same way about the movie as I did? It really made me think about things differently." My partner nodded and replied, "Yes, I totally agree. It was such a powerful and thought-provoking film. I can't stop thinking about it either." We spent the rest of the night discussing the themes of the movie and how it had impacted us. It was a great conversation and one that I will always remember. The movie had truly left a lasting impression on both of us..

I finally got around to watching this today and was pleasantly surprised that they didn’t go the route of cannibalism which I felt was hinted in the trailers. That would’ve just been boring. I like the undertones of the staff being in a cult to the chef. I loved the use of imagery and how Margot simply saw how happy the chef was with that Burger picture. Loved the aspect of the chef mentioning his childhood in Europe and in Iowa or Idaho (can’t remember the detail of which one he said.) Did not love the aspect of the coast guard being one of the staff waiting for a distressed radio call to go out and also felt like that aspect of what Margot did (called for help) should have been the end of her chance to escape. But all in all I do like that it was neatly wrapped up as a gas explosion in the restaurant on an island to cover up almost everything that went on that night. Only evidence left would be Margot and that guy they drowned outside.

In a year of excellent horror films coming our way from the independents and a big disappointment from the main companies, it was refreshing to see a film like The Menu come and sweep us all away. This is an Oscar worthy film and although it probably cuts to close to the bone for the industry to be recognised with such honour, this film will be one that will live long after 2022 and a new favourite to watch again and again.

If I ignore the fact that all guests in that room just seem fine with seeing people getting murdered or mutilated around them without doing anything about, I think this movie had a super interesting concept about the food industry and food culture of today. I especially love the character Tyler who represent the self-taught foodie who watched every episode of Gordon Ramsays cooking show (i.e cooking if it was a Michael Bay action movie) and think they know a single thing about cooking as a professional. I once got seated next to a former Michelin star holder and one of the judges in the Swedish version of Masterchef and he said that the best contestant in that show wouldnt last a day in a professional kitchen of a good restaurant. He said that the winner MAYBE was good enough to start as a commis but just maybe.

damn that is a nice explanation. It is so different from what I had in mind after I watched it. So here it is. I thought the Chef (ralph) started these killings because people would only seem to go to his restaurant just because he is now a celebrity chef that no matter what he cooks, how expensive it is, how stupid it is, people would still buy it because it is a famous restaurant and he’s a famous chef just so people would have something to brag about or post on the internet. AND THEN when Anya Taylor found out that he was once a regular chef at a fast food, an employee of the month, famous for his cheeseburger. She then used that information to break the Chef. And now the Chef realized (without him knowing what Anya Taylor found out about him) his old life where he is loved by people for actually making real food with real passion/love, and not some cheap but expensive food. This is what I loved about the film, it really let us viewers to think for ourselves about what the heck just happened. GREAT MOVIE 10/10

One very small and inconsequential moment I really liked was when Erin was leaving, she looked back at everyone, not sure why, maybe survivor's guilt. She specifically looks at the older woman who's husband cheated on with Erin, I just really enjoyed how the woman sort of shooed her away like "forget us, run, this is your chance." No selfish comment, freak out, etc. Which is even more selfless considering plenty of woman would be furious with Erin for what she does and who she did it with, even earlier in the movie the dude bros were shoving people and yelling at them to get out of the way when being chased, so the production was very clearly okay with making the guests look as bad as possible. It doesn't affect the message or the metaphor at all, it was just a nice little moment I liked.

The only one I’d argue that shouldn’t have been there is the actors assistant. But on the contrary, I believe her being there was a important. Although most can understand the Chef’s “Method to Madness” approach which most of the time can have viewers sympathize with an antagonist, the assistant being there off the strength of her “going to Brown an paying her student loans” brings focus to the “Madness” side of the Chef. That no, this isn’t a antagonist to sympathize with, to understand, this is a maniac that doesn’t mind a lil ‘collateral damage’ in order to get his point across. (Side note: When ‘Margot’ got her food ‘to go’ I do NOT know how nobody else didn’t use the same idea lol. I would’ve said “me too” with the quickness)

Margot was never going to die. When the boyfriend character tries cooking up food and fails miserably. Chef whispers to the dude something that was probably along the lines of “you won’t get to die in the menu tonight”. And he turns to Margot and says she is free too. That’s when he asks her to go get the barrel, we are so used to sick demented serial killers in horror movies that we thought he would have searched for her if she didn’t return. When in reality, he was giving her an out. The fact she goes and looks for the barrel is when that host lady tries killing her because she says Margot is trying to “take her spot” since she didn’t run away and followed his orders. Chef just didn’t let her leave earlier because he didn’t want to leave her enough time to go and get the cops before dessert happened.

Only thing that bothered me was the low price point. Would have to charge way more than 1250 a head with only 12 guests a night lol the overhead to run that restaurant with that kind of quality ingredients and huge staff would be so high.

My partner raised a point about this. It does seem like a very low cost for the quality the guests receive but because they source from the island it may help reduce costs. Although I believe the low price is making a point about how the 'givers' are being exploited. Working for low or no pay, with no days off, yet trying to provide a perfect experience while under constant scrutiny. This comes with a clear mental cost. The 'givers' have given up their entire lives, going so far as to live on the island in order to reach for perfection and satisfy strangers they will never know.

He loved it, he was glued to the screen aand it helped too that I looked up the dishes they ate in the movie and was describing what they were and meant without spoiling his appetite lol. I'm gonna show him more movies like this

This is the 1st movie I've watched on my own accord in a long time. I drank 1/3 a bottle of tequila and ate a bag of non descript microwave popcorn while only taking one piss break during that "happy birthday" scene, that coincidentally lined up _perfectly_ with whatever animated movie my parents were watching... And I still don't know what the fuckin barrel was about. I really enjoyed this movie

Okay so being a Chef personally I have gone through a burn out multiple times this movie was an absolute 1000/10 for me and even my wife who doesn't watch movies let alone once or even a second time we both love this movie. I teared up at him making the cheese burger cause it was the first and only time we see him smile. He had come back to what made him truly happy even after having a family. And continuing his craft and passion of cooking not even that having a family made him happy like making a simple cheeseburger did it was just amazing writing all the way around. And an absolute blast comedically and again as a chef myself who has gone through being burnt out on my art my craft my life see that people can visually see what happens to somebody who is in an art go through that. It was absolutely amazing and quite frankly his actions were just lmao.

I finished this film as soon as it became available on Disney+. Definitely going to give it a rewatch in a few days.

@YouSawNothing It's made by Searchlight Pictures, which is owned by Disney. They have an old contract with HBO in the US because of which the Searchlight and 20th Century Studios films go to HBO in the US. Outside the US, all these films are on Disney+ including 'The Menu'. Oh and that contract with HBO expired at the end of 2022 so all the 2023 and onward releases from both the aforementioned studios wouldn't go to HBO anymore.

The actor didn't do anything wrong. Having money and buying expensive food doesn't warrant being murdered. It sounds deranged when you try to make him out to be the same as the others.

@Kristine Ilochi If you think that's worthy of brutal death there is something wrong with you.

He was a phony though. He admitted that he liked to name drop to make people believe that he's so popular and knows so many other popular, prestigious people when in actuality he was washed up and does not. Oh, and he ruined Chef's one day off with his crappy acting in a trash movie. He lost his passion for acting and Chef didn't appreciate that.

I very rarely comment on videos. But good sir, I greatly appreciate this break down. Truly, I’m grateful that you took the time to break down the premise. Originally I wrote this movie off as some sick twisted dark fantasy of a sociopath chef. Thought it was too dark and overtly dumb. But then sought an explanation. Found your video. And honestly, I wish I had watched the spoiler first and then the movie. I would have had a greater appreciation. For that, I thank you 🙏🏽

My boyfriend and I watched this in theatre not knowing what to expect. I CANNOT tell you how many times we looked at other with the eyes of “DID THAT REALLY JUST HAPPEN??” 😂🌺🌺 We loved the movie so much that we spent the drive home talking about it. I appreciate movies that make me think about things more in depth and new perspective. Very well done! 👏🏽

I loved this film. One of my favourites of 2022. Ralph Fiennes and Anna Taylor Joy’s performances were great, as well as their chemistry

❤We just watched it. One of the more interesting movies so far this year. It was quite a creative concept and I LOVED the ending. The girl and her cheeseburger got away. Nice! ❤

This movie reminds me of ‘Ready or Not’ it has almost similarities of concepts and twist, it’s fun and refreshing.. except few cannibalism :) and both movie had me think and had no idea what is all about, any new ideas or thoughts could happen in this movie, it’s just how the narrative and how we view them. This movie gives me unlimited questionable feelings which is fun!

The ending gave me midsomer vibes they seemed so like brainwashed to the whole thing and accepted death and even thanks the chef saying they loved him. Super weird still have no answers why I am so confused. Definitely one of those WTF movoes

When I went to watch this it was said to be a horror thriller. It was nothing close to that 😂 seems like alot of people enjoyed it but I was just trying to figure out what every random part of this movie was about, which led me here. Eh. Even if explained I'd rate it 5/10 but nice to see everyone else enjoyed it ❤

So many people might walk away calling slowic as stuck up or psychotic but people are a product of their environment. Slowic used to be a fun loving chef but through the years, he’s had to put up with reviewers and such and it changed him. When I started my career in teaching I was passionate and caring but through experience with the administrative politics, I had to eventually split my focus elsewhere away from the students

And the fact that she wipes her mouth with the Menu at the end is the ultimate way to disassociate from the others.
