I'll watch this over and over again. The cheese and the beer sequences are deliciously obsessive. «Unlike words, objects have their qualities inscribed in them, not ascribed to them... objects enfold their properties, embody them, the grape or frosty, the metal jar, great, the cheese, crumbly... the material and the idea form a continuum.»

As the Genre painters were commissioned by the wealthy to decorate their homes with the celebrations of wealth and abundance, the comparison is not lost.
