Roger Ebert, America's most visible film writer and critic, presents 100 essays collected from his biweekly newspaper feature called "The Great Movies". Each essay is a brilliant example of offering critical appreciation, analysis, and history that will send readers back to that film with a fresh set of eyes and renewed enthusiasm—or to an enlightened first-time viewing. His selections range widely across genres, periods, and nationalities, and from the highest achievements in film art to justly beloved and successful popular entertainment.
Includes: "All About Eve," "Bonnie and Clyde," "Casablanca," "Citizen Kane," "The Godfather," "Jaws," "La Dolce Vita," "Metropolis," "On the Waterfront," "Psycho," "The Seventh Sea," "Sweet Smell of Success," "Taxi Driver," "The Third Man," "The Wizard of Oz," and 86 more films.
Roger Ebert manages in these essays to combine a truly popularist appreciation for our most important form of popular art with a scholar's erudition, depth of knowledge, and sure aesthetic sense. Enhanced by stills selected by Mary Corliss, film curator at the Museum of Modern Art.
