Film Frames Friday

RIP, Roger Ebert. Today's film frames come from his ten favorite movies. I won't say something silly like I hope he's watching these films somewhere, because he didn't believe that, and neither do I. Here's a quote from his beautiful essay on death in Salon Magazine:

"I know it is coming, and I do not fear it, because I believe there is nothing on the other side of death to fear. I hope to be spared as much pain as possible on the approach path. I was perfectly content before I was born, and I think of death as the same state. I am grateful for the gifts of intelligence, love, wonder and laughter. You can’t say it wasn’t interesting. My lifetime’s memories are what I have brought home from the trip. I will require them for eternity no more than that little souvenir of the Eiffel Tower I brought home from Paris."

  1. I just noticed that "The Third Man" wasn't on there? I wonder if it got bumped at some point, he used to say it was his favorite movie, but I am sure that could have changed. I love love love his piece in salon too, this is a nice tribute.
