In this love letter to "the stinking rose," documentarian Les Blank interviews garlic fanatics of all stripes, from cooks to members of garlic appreciation societies. The film, (a lip-smacking foray into the history, consumption, cultivation and culinary/curative powers of the stinking rose) features internationally renowned chef Alice Waters of Chez Panisse and a flavorful musical soundtrack. In 2004 GARLIC was one of 25 films, selected by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Film Registry list of films to be preserved in perpetuity.
