We couldn't help but review the wine movie of the day: SOMM. 

We liked it, mostly. Here are the highlights:

  • The cinematography was outstanding -- this guy (Jason Wise) can make a movie! 
  • Wise presented the rigor of the exam well
  • The characters were interesting

BUT, we felt that, knowing what we know, there were some holes in the presentation. We raise things like the intensity of the service exam (nearly invisible in the movie), the financial hit people have to take to be successful, and what it actually gets you once you achieve this level (be careful what you wish for)...

Enjoy and PLEASE take it for what it's worth. We are reviewing from the wine perspective -- we're by no means pro reviewers. We'd love to hear your opinions on it all!
