Until the documentary about Village institution, Shopsin's, I Like Killing Flies (low culture has a nice look at the film) comes out, New York foodies' film appetites will have to be whetted by Eat This New York, a doc about the struggle of opening a restaurant when you're not Rocco DiSpirito. Cameos from various NY food personalities are in the film: Keith McNally, Jean-Georges, Sirio Maccioni, Daniel Boulud, Ruth Reichl and as Manhattan User's Guide puts it, "the insufferable Tim Zagat."

Movies that make you hungry: Big Night, Eat Drink Man Woman, Babette's Feast, Like Water for Chocolate.
