Hello Everyone,

And so another year passes and another Ebertfest comes to a close. I managed to make it to all 13 screenings and enjoyed all of the films -- some more than others. Most unexpected favorite: "Come Early Morning" (directed by Joey Lauren Adams and starring Ashley Judd in a role as charming as the one in her first film, Ruby in Paradise). Most unexpected least favorite: "Freddie Mercury, the Untold Story" (and I really, really wanted to love this). Otherwise, seeing "La Dolce Vita" on that giant screen was breathtaking and "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" works much better with an audience than it did the first time I saw it by myself. I really missed Roger Ebert during the discussions but they pulled it all off pretty well in his absence. Werner Herzog? Amazing! And how about the Strawberry Alarm Clock? Hmmmm... rock flute anyone?

Essential Art House Films Update: Last week's film was Robert Hamer's quintessential British comedy "Kind Hearts and Coronets" -- with Alec Guiness in eight roles. This week's film will be Carol Reed's film noir "The Third Man". 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)
