Hard frown. I’m taking tips for what I should watch as far as movies that this guy loved. Anyone?
Well, that sucks.
:( :( :( No.
Terrible news. sigh.
This is very sad and somehow shocking even though it shouldn’t be, but to make it even worse when I read about this at the AVClub, someone in the comments mentioned something about Iain Banks and… holy crap, guys. Don’t know how many Iain Banks fans there are out there but this day officially sucks.
We can all celebrate the man by (re)watching his favorites:
2001: A Space Odyssey
The Up Series
Gates Of Heaven
La Dolce Vita
The Third Man
As a kid growing up in Chicago, I always loved Ebert and Gene Siskel; they were two of the very few film critics who treated film seriously beyond just ‘see this or don’t see this.’
Don’t think that a comment on a blog is necessarily an appropriate way to convey the loss I feel. However, watching this YouTube clip of Gene and Roger arguing over Silence of The Lambs takes the sting out.
As both a Chicagoan and a film lover, everything is sad today.
No, no no no. I just do not want to accept that this is true.
Oh man. Oh man. Goddammit, cancer.
RIP. What I loved about him is not only did he know a great deal about movies, but he wasn’t afraid to love shittier ones as well. He will be missed.
