‘Boiling Point’ 2021: Movie Review

Boiling Point is a 2021 drama movie directed by Philip Barantini and starring Stephen Graham.

An outstanding one-shot film that takes the audience behind the scenes of a high end restaurant. A definite “must watch”.


‘Boiling Point’ follows a Chef and his team during their hectic evening shift at a renowned restaurant, and will lead the viewers to witness to the conflicting stories of its staff and diners.

Our Opinion

As a viewer it is an immersive cinematic experience, which is worth watching on a TV set, but it makes one wonder how much more impactful the viewing experience would be in a movie theater. The narrative structure is well executed, and the one-shot filming is impressively well choreographed, the lighting is impeccable, and the performances are all too convincing. We most certainly recommend this movie. It is one of a kind in contemporary cinema.

Movie Reviews

Guy Lodge: Variety

“[It] may be anchored by Graham’s superbly kinetic performance but ultimately proves a team effort. The nimble, naturalistic performers are uniformly terrific”

Gary Goldstein: Los Angeles Times
