Roger Ebert's Blank on Blank episode debuts

Posted on

The late, beloved film critic Roger Ebert is the subject of PBS’s latest episode of Blank on Blank, where audio from old interviews is put together with whimsical animation. In the clip, Ebert discusses what he looks for in a great film, waxes poetic about the John Cusack classic Say Anything, and calls out the biggest egos in Hollywood—Woody Allen and Ingmar Bergman—but explains why that’s a good thing. The audio comes from the archives of writer Lawrence Grobel, who interviewed Siskel and Ebert for a Playboy interview that ran in January 1991. 

Check out the clip below, along with a few gifs and quotes courtesy of PBS.
