Nicko, I don't know aout the movie thread but, I am interested in it too. Anyway, I just joined Netflix (movie rentals online, no late charges etc...)and did a search for food related movies, documentaries, PBS programs and they have a ton. I just watched the first season of a series from the UK called "Chef!" about a not so nice chef/owner of a 2 star michelin French restaurant. I really liked it and it is quite funny. I found a ton of stuff at Netflix. I am pretty sure you can just go to their site and look even if you haven't joined. Then you can just make a list and get them at your local video store if they have them. Key words that worked best were chef and restaurant - food brought up a few.
