“Ebert’s enthusiasm and . . . straightforward prose are ideal for examining films . . . You remember why he’s the only film critic ever to win the Pulitzer Prize.” —New York Post
“[T]hese pieces reflect Ebert’s long, thoughtful, informed familiarity with these films. His impeccable credentials as an accessible populist encourage thinking that his recommendations . . . may be taken to heart by mainstream moviegoers who avidly follow his newspaper and TV reviews.” —Booklist
“An appreciation of the greatest movies by the greatest movie enthusiast . . . I read this book with pleasure, enlightenment, and a desire to see many of the movies again, because I had missed what Roger saw.” —Paul Theroux
