Scorsese by Ebert by Roger Ebert( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,014 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Scorsese by Ebert offers the first record of America's most respected film critic's engagement with the works of America's greatest living director. The book chronicles every single feature film in Scorsese's considerable oeuvre, from his debut in 1967's I Call First, later renamed Who's That Knocking at My Door, to his 2008 release, the Rolling Stones documentary, Shine a Light." "Here Ebert puts Scorsese's career in illuminating perspective, exploring the different phases of his development and the abiding themes (many of which reflect Scorsese's Catholicism) that give his work such complexity and depth. All of Ebert's incisive reviews of Scorsese's individual films are here, of course, but there is much more. In the course of eleven interviews done over almost forty years, the book includes Scorsese's own insights on both his accomplishments and disappointments. A career-spanning interview from 1997, one of the longest ever conducted with Scorsese, appears here for the first time. Ebert has also written and included six new reconsiderations of the director's less commented upon films, as well as a substantial introduction that provides a framework for understanding both Scorcese and his profound impact on American cinema."--Jacket

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The latest installment of ITV's landmark documentary series returns to visit the people whose lives have been followed since they were just seven-years-old. The original '7 Up' was broadcast in 1964 as a one-off World in Action Special featuring children chosen from different backgrounds to talk about their hopes and dreams for the future. The series was inspired by World in Action founder editor Tim Hewat's interest in both the saying: "Give me the child until he is seven and I will show you the man," and the rigid class system of 1960s Britain. 7 Up set out to discover whether or not the children's lives were pre-determined by their background. Director Michael Apted, who has since moved to Hollywood to direct films including 'The World Is Not Enough', 'The Chronicles of Narnia' and 'Gorillas in the Mist', has returned every seven years to chart the children's progress through life." Now they are 56 years old

Two weeks in the midday sun : a Cannes notebook by Roger Ebert( Book )

11 editions published between 1987 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A paragon of cinema criticism for decades, Roger Ebert with his humor, sagacity, and no-nonsense thumb achieved a renown unlikely ever to be equaled. His tireless commentary has been greatly missed since his death, but, thankfully, in addition to his mountains of daily reviews, Ebert also left behind a legacy of lyrical long-form writing. And with Two Weeks in the Midday Sun, we get a glimpse not only into Ebert the man, but also behind the scenes of one of the most glamorous and peculiar of cinematic rituals: the Cannes Film Festival. More about people than movies, this book is an intimate, quirky, and witty account of the parade of personalities attending the 1986 festival Ebert's twelfth, and the fortieth anniversary of the event
