Roger Ebert has been writing film reviews for the Chicago Sun-Times for over four decades now and his biweekly essays on great movies have been appearing there since 1996. As Ebert noted in the introduction to the first collection of those pieces, a€œThey are not the greatest films of all time, because all lists of great movies are a foolish attempt to codify works which must stand alone. But ita€™s fair to say: If you want to take a tour of the landmarks of the first century of cinema, start here. Enter The Great Movies III, Eberta€™s third collection of essays on the crAume de la crAume of the silver screen, each one a model of critical appreciation and a blend of love and analysis that will send readers back to the films with a fresh set of eyes and renewed enthusiasma€”or maybe even lead to a first-time viewing. From The Godfather: Part II to Groundhog Day, from The Last Picture Show to Last Tango in Paris, the hundred pieces gathered here display a welcome balance between the familiar and the esoteric, spanning Hollywood blockbusters and hidden gems, independent works and foreign language films alike. Each essay draws on Eberta€™s vast knowledge of the cinema, its fascinating history, and its breadth of techniques, introducing newcomers to some of the most exceptional movies ever made, while revealing new insights to connoisseurs as well. Named the most powerful pundit in America by Forbes magazine, and a winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Roger Ebert is inarguably the most prominent and influential authority on the cinema today. The Great Movies III is sure to please his many fans and further enhance his reputation as Americaa€™s most respecteda€”and trusteda€”film critic.As Ebert noted in the introduction to the first collection of those pieces, a€œThey are not the greatest films of all time, because all lists of great movies are a foolish attempt to codify works which must stand alone.
