Review: Matt Mungle
Deli Man is open for business at most art house
theaters but make sure you don’t see it on an empty stomach. You
will be salivating by the time it is over. Part Food Network and part
History Channel this documentary is an entertaining, humorous, and upbeat
look at the history of delicatessens in the United States.
It is note worthy how seamlessly director Erik
Anjou blends the German Jewish history into the Deli story. They are one
in the same and share a similar heartbeat. As the music carries the story
from clip to clip the Jewish immigrant style transports the viewer into
the mindset of this culture. It is undoubtedly one of the most fun and
fascinating documentaries I have watched in some time. A must see!
