Ebert has performed a flip-flop of opinion greater than Kerry ever has. Considering the heated war of words between him and Gallo (the Republican Harlan Ellison?) last year, I'm surprised he'd give such a positive-and seemingly honest-reassesment of the final film.

Ebert is a worthless pile of toad goo. He spends his time giving favorable movie reviews to hollywood hatchet jobs on conservatives. He is not creative enough to do any original work in Hollywood, and not smart enough to write any real journalism.

I don't like Ebert but I wouldn't compare the change in his opinion of this film to Kerry's flip flops. The film was edited and Ebert liked it better after the editing. Kerry, on the other hand, changes his opinion based on whomever he is talking to at the time.

It's sort of like painting your house blue and Ebert saying he doesn't like it, but after it's painted yellow, he does. Kerry would look at the blue house and say he hated it one day and the very next day, say that he loved it.

Don't question Roger Ebert's patriotism. Where were YOU in Viet Nam, BUDDY?

"Apart from the news that he is a Republican, that was the most astonishing revelation he made: He doesn't like the way he looks. I disagree; I find him a striking screen presence."

Ebert: ...I have absolutely nothing against sex in the cinema.

...Since that's the only place I ever get to see any.

But to reveal how it works on a level more complex than the physical would be to undermine the way the scene pays off. The scene, and its dialogue, and a flashback to the Daisy character at a party, work together to illuminate complex things about Bud's sexuality, his guilt, and his feelings about women...oogle gargle bobol gibble - Ebert's a master of high-sounding double talk meaning not much of anything - as best exemplified by his review of Moore's Fahrenheit which he thought was a grand film, "and I would say that even if I didn't agree with his political views, which of course I do".............

This is a bigger flip=flop than Kerry's reversal on the "troops out of Germany and Korea" issue -- Kerry favored it for 14 years, then reversed himself 1 day after Bush suddenly agreed with him.

Some movies, you just can't wait to get to the theater to watch. Others, you wait for the DVD release. Then, there are movies like this one, where reading a review will more than suffice...
