Moviepudding is a food & movies newsletter by film critic and culture writer Elissa Suh.

I’ve written for Bon Apptit, Grub Street, Eater, MUBI, Nylon, T: The NYT Style Magazine, Filmmaker Magazine, Architectural Digest, Screen Slate, and more.

I’m using this newsletter unload opinions that don’t end up elsewhere or fit into ~traditional publication calendars~ and write about my two main interests in life, which don’t overlap in media as much as you’d think.

Here’s a short piece I wrote on Michael Mann’s diners that gets the gist of it.

What to expect:

  • Micro-assessments of movies and restaurants

  • Observations on food in the movies

  • Eccentric film and food pairings(!)

  • Restaurant notes, scene reports, and general appetitive lusting

  • Guides, lists, and interviews

Why subscribe?

Life is too short for bad movies. And bad food.
