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.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
