Oscars, Schmoscars.

Look what Roger Ebert’s adding to his Ten Greatest Films list.

Someday, I should consolidate all of my various reviews of this film into one, since my thoughts about it change every time I see it. And isn’t that what great art does? Isn’t it alive like that, showing you something new with every encounter?

I commend Ebert on his choice. And even so, it’s not even my favorite film from that director.
