Maybe best adult beverage scene ever. Memorable for plenty of reasons, starting with Scotch and metaphors:
Tampopo for sure, but this scene in particular:
AND… the oyster scene, which some may find disturbing…
Did anyone say this.
Leave the gun, take the cannoli.
Famed-critic Pauline Kael’s favorite film: “MENILMONTANT”
The bread-sharing scene from Dimitri Kirsanoff’s silent film Ménilmontant (1926).
Maggie: What was your favorite movie in your entire life?
Pauline: In my entire life? Well, there’s a French movie that probably you’ve never heard of that I like best…
I was ordering a pizza last night at a local restaurant. I wanted a pizza margherita. They said it was not on their pizza menu . I said do you have tomato sauce , cheese and fresh basil . They said yes . Well I’ll have that . The couple next to me at the bar mentioned that was just like the scene in five easy pieces . I had no idea .lol
We actually had that happen too - at a restaurant where the chef thought he was quite special. Sorry about diverting from the topic!
Primer for Thanksgiving:

I LOVE THIS MOVIE!!! Always a must-watch!
We had TWO versions of the album!
I have the VCR tape…just no VCR. I should get that transferred to DVD…
Yes! I did that with “Where The Wild Things Are”.
I don’t have the album’s Babes in Toyland album anymore, but I do have the 1960’s version of A Christmas Carol. That one had some memorable food scenes too! We love shouting “a bit a pu-tay-tuh” when we are watching that.
And “the one as big as me?!?!?”!

This food scene from “The loved one” is the tamer of the two in the movie … if you like a bizarre dark satirical comedy this one is for you … IMO a most underrated film
Lastly, Homestyle Turkey turned me onto “Sweet Bean” here is a link to the trailer, it is impossible to pick just one scene … the entire movie is wonderful
Great picks!! So many favs.
