[Unedited] Ratatouille with A.O. Scott
Ratatouille is a Pixar feast. The tale of Remy, a rat who dreams of becoming an excellent chef, is a delight to experience in all five senses. One particular character — Anton Ego, the restaurant critic — brings A. O. Scott back to the heart of his own work as a New York Times’ chief film critic. He says Ratatouille changed how he understands the work of criticism. This conversation is not just about food; it’s a reminder to return to our love for our craft — whether that’s food, movies, or something else altogether. You can find the edited version of this conversation with music and clips in the This Movie Changed Me episode "Ratatouille — A.O. Scott." Find more at onbeing.org/series/this-movie-changed-me/.
