I love you in a brotherly sort of way. Complete with hugs and respect.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Besides his anti-Lynch stance (with the exception of Mul. Dr.) Ebert is great

My mom used to read my Ebert reviews, and then once I could read myself I became addicted. He's one of my biggest inspirations, actually. I think he's a truly great writer, and even when I disagree with him, he makes it easy to see where he's coming from (most of the time -- his reviews of Raising Arizona comes to mind, and Spawn). One of my dreams is to read his review of one of my films someday.

No, more his plodding, sluggish plot summaries and the distinct impression of light bulbs going off over his head all the time.

For Pulitzer Prize-winning critics, I prefer Jay Sherman. Of all the Pulitzer prize winners, only Eudora Welty can best him at a belching contest.  :lol:

Speaking of the Pulitzers, I'm now officially ashamed to be seen out of doors with my copy of Jeffrey Eugenides's Middlesex, lest anyone think I scurried out to nab it merely because it won some prize. Thanks a lot, Pulitzer committee.

It is a really good book, though.  Has anyone read it? I wonder if they'll make it into a movie?
""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

Stay informed on protecting your freedom of speech and civil rights.

...sluggish plot summaries...

That is the only thing about Ebert I dislike. I cannot stand it when he does a quick run down of the plot. Often it is a paragraph that simply does not need to be told. His best reviews are the ones that just talk about aspects of the movie and leave the plot completely untouched.

If you guys are going to talk about Ebert's writing, you have to include:

“Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” - Andy Warhol

Yeah!! This comes to our local arthouse this month, in a restored print. I will get to see it for the first time. Ebert rocks!!

When asked why he hired Ebert, Russ Meyer said: "he likes big tits, I like big tits, it seemed like a good idea".  (I think I'm paraphrasing a bit)

Kick ass. Russ Meyer should hire me.

when i was trying to get into fear x at sundance ebert was standing outside the theater--he seemed kind of pissed -- i started shooting the shit with him -- they said the film was over-sold and they wouldnt give him a seat, he was standing around griping outside-- i found that kind of sad -- he gets no respect.
