A Critic’s Response to Criticism

For her birthday I bought Debbie Ratatouille. We generally love Pixar movies.


For me, my favorite and the most meaningful moment is the review from the critic who seemed to love to hate on restaurants. This impossible to please food connoisseur wrote:

“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 themselves to our judgment. 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 the defense of the new. The world is often unkind to new talent and new creations. The new needs friends….”

May we all bravely pursue the new that helps the world become a better place!

By the way, didn’t the message of Ratatouille seemed to contradict the message of Cars, a movie which seemed to call people back into the past?
