14 Pews Bayou City Food and Film Festival: Garlic is as Good as Ten Mothers

The San Francisco Chronicle called this paean to garlic "a joyous, nose-tweaking, ear-tingling, mouth-watering tribute to a Life Force." Nothing less than a hymn to the stinking rose of the kitchen, this lovingly photographed documentary is an odyssey of garlic feasts alternated with uniquely individual interviews of garlic aficionados. Not only does the film promote garlic as the first line of defense against all forms of blandness, it also titillates the taste buds with shots of garlic dishes sizzling in their pans.

Les Blank shows again that he knows how to have a good time on film.
