    Hachmesiters's Three Stars is a treat, largely because it eschews the standard arc of documentaries.

    The doc has little to say about the Michelin ranking system that hasn't been said, but offers enough behind-the-scenes interest to entertain foodies and inspire a few additions to their dining-experience bucket lists.

    The dishes dazzle in Lutz Hachmeister's documentary Three Stars, a cinematic helping of some of the world's finest restaurants - and of their chefs' opinions.

    Maybe because Hachmeister has a background in journalism, his movie endeavors to educate by covering a lot of ground in its 90-plus minutes, which is certainly commendable, it's just not that satisfying.

    Three Stars works best as straight-up food-porn.

    As a sampler course of what it means to court the Michelin honor, Three Stars is enjoyable, but it's simply a collision of details that never entirely converge into a meaningful whole.

    Hachmeister's understatement results in a narrative plateau somewhere in the last third of the film, and viewers who showed up hungry may become impatient.
