Dinners Gone Wrong – A Supercut of Weird Movie Meals

Luís Azevedo serves up some of the strangest and more stomach-turning food moments in cinema history.

What’s your favourite food moment in the movies? Maybe it’s the surrealist chicken carving in David Lynch’s 1977 debut, Eraserhead. Or perhaps you’ve always had a soft spot for the food fight in Vera Chytilová’s 1966 comedy Daisies.

For his latest video essay, we set Luís Azevedo the task of serving up a supercut of some of the more weirder and wonderful food-related scenes in movie history. The result is an oddly compelling, occasionally hilarious alternative look at cinema through a culinary lens, taking in a wide range of delectable tidbits from the likes of Tim Burton, William Friedkin and Steven Spielberg.
