American Fable is ambitious, maybe too much so sometimes, but there's an intense pleasure in the boldness of the film's style.

Good to hear from Roger

From Neah Robinson, Summit, IL:

For almost twenty years I have read Roger's reviews and agree with him about 98% of the time. Knowing that I can rely on him has kept me waiting with bated breath each Friday morning to read his column. Roger has warned me countless times about disastrous plots (whiched saved me a lot of money) and he has also opened my eyes to several hidden gems.

I've always had a great respect and admiration for him but never realized until his recent illness that I care about him as if he is a member of my family.

If I don't get a report about his health at least once a week I get nervous and imagine that the reason for the delay is because he is gravely ill, so I was a bit relieved to read the update on August 17th that came directly from him.

First I pray that he has a complete recovery and second that hopefully he will have the strength and desire to stay in contact with his millions of admirers for years to come.
