The Instagram Account Documenting The Best Food Scenes In Cult Films


DAISIES (dir. věra chytilová, 1966)/@meals.on.reels

With a focus on “more obscure films and scenes”, the images featured on @meals.on.reels are taken from cult world cinema and independent films through the years, from a knife plunged into the kitschy Valentine’s Day cake in ethereal Australian mystery Picnic at Hanging Rock, to the extravagant faux-celebratory Taiwanese feast in Ang Lee’s The Wedding Banquet, and Romy Schneider throwing a violent fit while cocooned in white bed sheets, a breakfast tray set down nearby in 1969’s La Piscine.

HAUSU (dir. nobuhiko obayashi, 1977)

A post shared by meals on reels (@meals.on.reels) on

“I was watching this 1970 British film called Perfect Friday, and it froze on a funny scene of Ursula Andress biting into a piece of bread with her eyes closed, and I took a screenshot,” recalls New York-based film critic and journalist Kristen Yoonsoo Kim, who runs @meals.on.reels, an Instagram account documenting delicious food in cult films. Starting the project in September 2017 after realising she already had an extensive library of food screenshots saved onto her computer, Kim’s inspiration for the page name arrived from a recent viewing of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me: “there’s that scene where Laura Palmer says she ‘can’t do Meals on Wheels that day’.”
