And it's probably his worst article ever, as well as the least-cerebral examination of a Kubrick film:

nice story about the epilogue and yet another duvall-mistreatment quote to add to the ball i keep in a drawer. as usual, worse than usual really, he's avoided any real insight by quoting half the movie and explaining the rest. by the time he's ready to end the essay, he settles for an enigmatic last line and we're left to make up the brilliance implied. what? i don't hav the energy to do that anymore, Roger.

here's a list of names for Ebert:
Roge 
Rog
Ebes 
Pog
Ro
Robert Ebert 
roguerum
endless 'nothing is what it seems'-isms

He's having surgery soon, so I wouldn't expect too much in the writing department.  I'm just glad to see it on the list.

it's not as bad as his FMJ review.
