The Menu (2022) - Film

the burger looked great, but man, I thought the ending was boring

I agree that the ending was probably the weakest bit. While the concept of the human s’more is amusing, and shots of it were beautiful (esp that overhead shot) the diners’ easy acceptance of their fate rang a little false for me. I could think of ways to handwave away my objections, but the rest of the film was so much fun I can forgive the misstep.

I think by the end of the film, the diners were resigned for to their fate. The chef even mentions that they could have tried harder… but being acolytes…. They could not help but be part of what next… to see how the chef played things out. They were willing to go because they understood their part in the grand menu. Plus…. Their death would always be associated with Hawthorne. That’s like a foodie badge of honor if there ever was one

So, in the end, does anyone know who was guiding that boat leading off the island with our ‘heroin’, burger in hand? Apparently talented, she knew how to operate this craft…
