This ramen Western (noodle Eastern?) is a cult classic here at Film Society in particular: a glorious comedic meditation on food that will make you crave a good bowl of ramen. The main plot concerns Tampopo, a widowed noodle chef, who is helped to become a first-class chef by truck driver Goro and friends --- but this bizarro collection of vignettes concerning food, sex, and American movie tropes filtered through a Japanese lens is so, so, so much more. Must be seen to be believed. The Philadelphia Inquirer rightly raves: "Outwardly preposterous. And everything works."
