#801. The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover (1989)
Why It's In The Book: "Taking his dissatisfaction with conservative politics to the extreme, Peter Greenaway devised The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover as an opulent and decadent riposte to Margaret Thatcher's England... Greenaway directs his film like a tapestry gone wrong, revealing all manner of depravity as he pans back and forth between the kitchen and dining room in search of a smidgen of good will amidst the savagery. The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover seethes anger and disgust, most of it directed toward the upper class, whose waste and barbarism is portrayed not just as a blight on society but frankly as an affront to good taste." -1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
Nicolas Krizan - 8/10
"restaurant life as a metaphor for society."
Squish - 8/10
"The entire story is immersed in darkness and surrounded by darkness, and will be, to most audiences, ironically unpalatable for a film whose major theme is fine dining... [yet] the film is quite beautiful to look at once you ignore the horrors being committed."
Klaus Ming - 7/10
Not since Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom (1975), has there been a film as strange, sadistic and unsavoury."
Movie Guy Steve - 7/10
"The events on the screen are so repugnant that the only way to bear it is by seeing it as a metaphor for something."
Brian Vs. Movies - 6.5/10
"The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover is a hard film to sit through because it is uncomfortable to watch; if you have a different viewing experience, then I would probably not feel comfortable around you in social situations."
Adolytsi - 6/10
"This film is demented, in every aspect and form. Full of sex and filthy British material, this is hardly one for the weak-constituted."
