Food & Desire in Film

For my thesis, I explored the many ways in which food was used in film in order to communicate the deep romantic desires the characters share for one another in their respective films. In particular I examined the way food and desire are interconnected in Paul Thomas Anderson's 'Phantom Thread', Peter Greenway's 'The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover' and Wong Kar-Wai's 'In The Mood For Love' and the different unique perspectives on food and desire each of these directors bring to the table in their respective films.
