Jackie

There are two movies in "Jackie." One of these movies is just OK. The other is exceptional. The first one keeps undermining the second.

Cannes Flashback: Bold and Beautiful Show Their Cannes-Do Spirit

Selections from Roger Ebert's Cannes coverage…

Flashback #6: Bold and Beautiful Show Their Cannes-Do Spirit

Another great pleasure of Roger's coverage was the all-access pass it provided readers to all of the exclusive star-studded events that unfolded far away from the public eye. This hugely entertaining dispatch from the 1998 festival follows Roger and Chaz to the AmFAR charity auction featuring such unforgettable sights as Sharon Stone singing "Twist and Shout" while Sir Elton John accompanies her on the piano. Roger also plays a game with his fellow colleagues where they quote the worst dialogue from the year's weakest selections, and the line he reads is priceless (check the photo for a hint). Yet perhaps the greatest highlight is Roger's description of the dinner cooked by Chef Roger Verge, "whose pea soup is so splendid that if it needs a little salt, you simply weep into it with gratitude."
