301/302 is a bizarre film about two very obsessive compulsive woman. One is infatuated with cooking, eating, and sex, the other is an anorexic that can’t even manage the sight or smell of food without vomiting. These two women live in an apartment complex one in 301 and the other in 302. At the beginning of the film we learn that the anorexic has gone missing by the detective questioning the gluttonous chef. The rest of the film is a series of flashbacks that depict the strange relationship between these women, their pasts, and what really happened to the missing anorexic.
I’m on the fence about how much I liked this movie. In one thought I think it was crap and then another quite intriguing. I wrestled with my rating. I probably would have given it a ** ¾ if JPX hadn’t banned me from giving ¼ and ¾ ratings. It definitely moved at a crawls pace at many times, and I think maybe about a half an hour of cooking could have been chopped. Some of the food was vile too. I thought the characters were very interesting case studies, and the film provided some good laughs. I wouldn’t run out for it, but it may be worth a viewing, especially if you’re entertained by the mentally ill.
