Jiro is the master of his craft, he is passionate and is a perfectionist. I can't help but think that anyone doing the same thing for as many decades as he has, with the finest ingredients as he has at his disposal would probably achieve the same though. Is it passion or is he ju...

Interesting doco. Not sure I would want to be working at Jiro's age, but good for him. His sushi looks delicious!

As "2 Broke Girls" put it in its own wacky way, there is a huge difference between awful sushi and great sushi. And with the winning documentary "Jiro Dreams of Sushi," we are at the awesome end of the spectrum in a ten seat restaurant, located underground in a Tokyo train stati...
