There's not a lot of new writing in this book, which is mostly a
collection of reviews that film critic Roger Ebert has done of movies
directed by Martin Scorsese. But that doesn't mean it's not worth
reading. Ebert is an exceptional writer, even if I don't always agree
with his taste in movies. Reading Ebert's reviews is like listening
to a friend and fellow movie fan discuss what's good and what's not.
He can, like most critics, get too involved in the art of filmmaking
or the technique of shooting a movie, rather than just telling you
whether it's worth seeing or not. But, even in those cases, the
quality of the writing shines through. Ebert is wrong when he says
that "The KIng of Comedy" is not a good film, while later on praising
"The Departed," an overlong movie about corruption in the Boston
Police Department. But part of the enjoyment -- especially if you
have seen the films -- is hearing both Ebert and Scorsese talk about
them and about their relative merits. I give it a definite thumbs up.
