    DescriptionRoger Ebert has been writing film reviews for "The Chicago Sun-Times" for over four decades now, and his biweekly essays on great movies have been featured there since 1996. As Ebert noted in the introduction to the first collection of those pieces, "They are not the greatest films of all time, because all lists of great movies are a foolish attempt to codify works which must stand alone. But it's fair to say: if you want to take a tour of the landmarks of the first century of cinema, start here." Enter "The Great Movies III", Ebert's third collection of essays on the creme de la creme of the silver screen, each one a model of critical appreciation and a blend of love and analysis that will send readers back to the films with a fresh set of eyes and renewed enthusiasm - or maybe even lead to a first-time viewing. From "The Godfather: Part II" to "Groundhog Day", from "The Last Picture Show" to "Last Tango in Paris", the hundred pieces gathered here display a welcome balance between the familiar and the esoteric, spanning Hollywood blockbusters and hidden gems, independent works and foreign language films alike.

    Review quote
    "Roger Ebert's take-no-prisoners essays packed with insidery insights will send movie lovers back to the sofa for a second look at old favorites like Cool Hand Luke and My Fair Lady while introducing more offbeat picks like Sansho the Bailiff and Pixote." (Parade) "Ebert offers informed critical appraisals, as well as background on the movie's making and significance, that make these pieces rewarding for film buffs and ideal introductions for first-time viewers." (Booklist) "No one has done as much as Ebert to connect the creators of movies with their consumers. He has immense power, and he's used it for good, as an apostle of the cinema." (Richard Corliss, Time)"
