By Roger Ebert
Carrying on with the pitch-perfect opinions began in The nice Movies, Roger Ebert's The nice videos II collects a hundred extra essays, every one of them a gem of severe appreciation and an amalgam of affection, research, and historical past that might ship readers again to movies with a clean set of eyes and renewed enthusiasm—or probably to an avid first-time viewing. Neither a snob nor a shill, Ebert manages in those essays to mix a very populist appreciation for ultra-modern most vital kind of well known paintings with a scholar's erudition and intensity of information and a convinced aesthetic feel. once more splendidly better by means of stills chosen through Mary Corliss, former movie curator on the Museum of recent artwork, The nice videos II is a treasure trove for movie fanatics of all persuasions, an unmatched consultant for audience, and a booklet to come back to back and again.
