When Roger Ebert passed away this week, I spent much of my time seeing old clips of Siskel and Ebert and reading some of his old reviews. Ebert always wrote with such eloquence and form, and his reviews all contained wit and humor. So for today’s question: I thought I would ask what is your favorite Roger Ebert review?
I’ve read his reviews of Apocalypse Now and 2001: A Space Odyssey (both my two favorite movies of all time and also coincidently Roger’s) the most, as well as some of his bitter rants, like North. My favorite segment from Siskel and Ebert is the two critics’ appraisal for Hoop Dreams, and I always love watching their arguments over some films like Blue Velvet, Silence of the Lambs, and Cop and a Half. But what are your’s?
