Trailer for the remastered version of Ezra Soiferman's documentary "Man of Grease" (2000), about now-retired Cosmos chef Tony Koulakis. With a score by Socalled, this is the first time the movie is being released on DVD. It contains 2 hours of bonus features artfully compiled by the film's editor and DVD designer, Mika Goodfriend.
Experience Montreal legend Tony Koulakis and his 11–seat greasy–spoon, Cosmos, famous for cholesterol–loaded breakfasts since 1967. Filmmaker Ezra Soiferman takes a loving look at Tony’s one-of-a-kind eatery and its loyal patrons.
Follow “The God of the Potatoes” as he nervously places Cosmos in the trust of his children and returns to his birthplace, the mythical sun–drenched Greek island of Crete, for his first vacation in 32 years. Will Tony retire in Greece or return to Canada to keep clogging our arteries?
You can skip breakfast… but you can’t miss this movie.
2 more hours of bonus features (and loads of calories) can be found on the DVD.
