The Menu is an entertaining black comedy-thriller from beginning to end. The unsettling atmosphere from the opening sets a distinct tone that continuously progresses into something absolutely wild complemented well by Colin Stetson’s score. While the performances are great across the board, Ralph Fiennes, once again, plays an unforgettable antagonist and delivers a performance that is among his best. The Menu works best as a thriller rather than a black comedy because not all of the humor lands, but the humor that lands works well. There are some loose ends here and there with certain character’s decisions, but that does not take away from the unique entertainment that comes with this creative film. With brilliant satirical social commentary, The Menu is a fun, twisted tale that will make audiences never see food the same again.
