Peter O'Toole....need we say more? What an incredibly powerful scene that captures the essence of what it means to be an artist. and the responsibility of those who are put in positions of power to decide what art should be shared with others.
The one thing that really stuck with me when I first saw this movie was this one scene, where a single bite reminded him of his mother's cooking. I don't know why it affected me as much as it still does today. It's such a beautiful moment and one of the most underrated parts in the Disney/Pixar filmography. Absolutely beautiful and effective.
Conveying the other senses on film, a visual and auditory medium, is not an easy task. Yet in the flashback scene, they perfectly captured what it feels like to be sent back in time by the taste of a certain dish. It's a universal feeling that hist you right in the heart, and that scene shows it beautifully. Bravo.
This reminds me of the first time I taste KFCs chicken tenders with its good biscuits and it’s smash potatoes with gravy and macaroni, and with the last touch, a chocolate chip cookie, that’s when I realized god what good.
What i like about this scene, is that the dish is so simple but it's the memories of his mother when she would make it for him as a child and the emotion of those memories that makes the meal so much better.
this film is truly not for a child. Many kids fail to understand the ending, but for the parents who watched it with their kids in the cinemas, surely became inpsired to cook a good meal for their family that night.
What I find an amazing tour de force in this sequence is how cleverly and seamlessly the character of Ego is completely overturned in the viewer's eyes, from the "vilain/antagonist" he was supposed to be to a dignified, intelligent and honest critic, as we understand his past harshness was just the expression of an honest nature who call things for what they are, and being outraged at what he viewed as pretense. And his speech is one of the more touching I've ever heard in a film, let alone in an animated one...unexpected, to say the least.

I guess in relation to the real world we can see the rats as an insulting, but nevertheless historical view of the lowest classes from the elite's pov. After all, the most longlived and favored of dishes are often staple meals tracing its origins to creative peasantry making do with what they had.
"In many ways the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little, yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves for our judgement. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. But there are times when a critic truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the new. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations; the new needs friends."
