My dad is a great fan of movies. I spent a lot of my summer vacations watching musicals, foreign films, and westerns. When all the other mormon kids were sitting out "The Graduate" junior year because of its R rating, I figured watching it one more time wasn't really going to make a difference in my spiritual progression.
My dad also taught me to watch Siskel and Ebert if I really wanted to learn about films. I know I didn't understand them that well, but I knew that they sure had a fun time doing their job. So it was with great pleasure that I saw this article on Roger Ebert in Esquire magazine. Read how the wordsmith still speaks without his voice.
