Les Blank acclaimed documentary film maker dies at 77. RIP.

This is a short teaser trailer of his epic film on Garlic. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-Kptp6u4JQ


This is Les Blank's (www.lesblank.com) most gastronomically obsessional film portrait yet. An exhaustive, lip-smacking foray into the history, consumption, cultivation, and culinary and curative powers of allium sativum, the film lingers in the disparate kitchens of Chez Panisse and Flint's Bar-B-Que in Berkeley, and Truckee's paradise for lovers of the stinking rose, La Vieille Maison. There's a piquant stop at the first Gilroy Garlic Festival, pertinent asides by Werner "I'll eat my shoe" Herzog, and performances of Cajun, French Provincial, Flamenco, Swiss Italian, Moroccan and Mexican music." --Robert DiMatteo, San Francisco Bay Guardian

Unfortunately, this film is not available on youtube or netfilix, but for garlic lovers it is a must-see! I just bought a copy on DVD from the Less Blank web site. http://www.lesblank.com/film-previews/
