Hello Everyone,

Roger Ebert sent out a light hearted press release the other day that ended with this statement: "At least, not being able to speak, I am spared the need to explain why every film is 'overlooked,' or why I wrote 'Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.'" Ebertfest 9.0 kicks off tonight with "Gattaca" on the big, big screen! Very exciting. "La Dolce Vita" on that same big, big screen will also be very exciting (although I have a friend who thinks it will be just as good at home on the small screen -- wrong!). Come to think of it, I'm even looking forward to "Holes" on the big, big screen with loud, loud sound (and that's the free family film this year so line up early). All-in-all, it should be an excellent weekend -- look for me in the back, eating popcorn and doing my best not to talk to anyone...

I will be riding with the folks from Illini 4000 again this Sunday (before going to see "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" at Ebertfest). In case you missed last week's bit, the Illini 4000 is a group of 25 U of I students (and recent graduates) who will be riding their bikes from New York to San Diego (4000 miles) this summer raising money for pediatric cancer research and Camp Kesem (a summer camp for children whose parents have been affected by cancer). Now that Ebertfest is upon us you can expect weekly updates on the Illini 4000, followed by the annual Tour de France countdown and then comes my birthday. Won't this be fun! (Note: unsubscribe info is at the bottom of this e-mail.)

Essential Art House Films Update: Last week's film was a great one I had never seen before, Carol Reed's "The Fallen Idol". This week's film, as seen through bleary post-Ebertfest eyes, will be Robert Hamer's "Kind Hearts and Coronets". In case you are interested, the latest review is on Renter's front page with a link to the rest of the reviews below it.

Have a great week!

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
