The Great Movies | Roger Ebert
57 posts | 2 read | 4 to read
Americas most trusted and best-known film critic Roger Ebert presents one hundred brilliant essays on some of the best movies ever made. For the past five years Roger Ebert, the famed film writer and critic, has been writing biweekly essays for a feature called "The Great Movies," in which he offers a fresh and fervent appreciation of a great film. The Great Movies collects one hundred of these essays, each one of them a gem of critical appreciation and an amalgam of love, analysis, and history that will send readers back to that film with a fresh set of eyes and renewed enthusiasmor perhaps to an avid first-time viewing. Eberts selections range widely across genres, periods, and nationalities, and from the highest achievements in film art to justly beloved and wildly successful popular entertainments. Roger Ebert manages in these essays to combine a truly populist appreciation for our most important form of popular art with a scholars erudition and depth of knowledge and a sure aesthetic sense. Wonderfully enhanced by stills selected by Mary Corliss, film curator at the Museum of Modern Art, The Great Movies is a treasure trove for film lovers of all persuasions, an unrivaled guide for viewers, and a book to return to again and again. The Great Movies includes: All About Eve Bonnie and Clyde Casablanca Citizen Kane The Godfather Jaws La Dolce Vita Metropolis On the Waterfront Psycho The Seventh Seal Sweet Smell of Success Taxi Driver The Third Man The Wizard of Oz and eighty-five more films. From the Hardcover edition.

I wish there was a Litsy for film...my husband asserts that I could use Instagram but it's just not the same. I'm watching my way through Ebert's Great Movies; anyone here interested in watching along?

LibrarianRyan There is. I can‘t remember what it‘s calle but another listen was talking about. I‘m sorry I can‘t remember the name. 12mo
Billypar I'm a big fan of Ebert's reviews and overall philosophy to film. I really like his Great Movies collection- still haven't seen many, but it has a lot of all time favorites of mine included. 12mo
readordierachel I remember when Far From Heaven came out. So visually striking! 12mo

everlocalwest @readordierachel It is a beautiful film! I had seen it, but the other two were new to me. I'm fascinated by stories like this that get picked up and retold in a manner that reflects the time and place they were made. 12mo

When I think #glamorous, old Hollywood stars come to mind, and Roger Ebert's first volume of great film tributes contains plenty of glamor roles from Notorious, La Dolce Vita, Vertigo, and Double Indemnity, to name a few. In the latter part of his career, Ebert matured a great deal and became a passionate advocate for film as art, while still writing insightfully about why a film succeeds with audiences. #augustgrrrl @Cinfhen
