Ebert Everlasting: Classic Film Festival in El Paso Honors Roger Ebert

The Plaza Classic Film Festival in El Paso, Texas is showing a series of seven of Roger's favorite movies. Charles Horak, the festival's artistic director, said that maybe by studying these films that were Roger's personal favorites we can learn something about the human being and not just about the critic. I suggest to the festival goers that you watch the films, and then re-read Roger's reviews of those movies here. And yes, in addition to dissecting a film from a cinematic basis, Roger would from time to time include opinions from life that gave you a peek into how he thought about many things. His point of view took into account many areas from literature to politics to just venturing through this life as a fellow human being responsible for one another.

The festival's tribute is called: "Ebert Everlasting." The seven films being shown are: "Citizen Kane"; "Fitzcarraldo"; "La Dolce Vita"; "Beyond The Valley of the Dolls"; "The Third Man"; "Tokyo Story"; and "Goodfellas."
