Essential Viewing: Roger Ebert on “35 Shots of Rum”

A video essay on one of Roger Ebert’s best films of last year.

As part of Keyframe’s ongoing spotlight on the films of Cinema Guild, we’re presenting a double shot of videos on 35 Shots of Rum, Claire Denis‘ acclaimed family drama. [Watch the other video featuring commentary by Claire Denis.]

This video essay is based on Roger Ebert’s four star review of 35 Shots of Rum, which Ebert hailed as one of the best films of last year.

Video edited by Kevin B. Lee. Music tracks “Opening” and “Train Montage” featured on the video are by Tindersticks from the 35 Shots of Rum soundtrack, available from Constellation Records.

Read Ebert’s full review of 35 Shots of Rum. And if you’re missing Ebert’s actual voice from this video, catch several vintage clips of his on-air reviews at Ebert Presents at the Movies.

    Thank you, Renee.As a film junkie, Ebert is one of my idols. Before Siskel and Ebert At The Movies, TV movie cisticrim was populated by dumb punsters who were there only because they weren’t good enough to be weathermen.Ebert and Siskel elevated the medium into Art.And his commentaries on DVDs are wonderful. The sci-fi cult classic Dark City is worth buying simply to listen to his insightful analysis alone.As a fan, I think Ebert is a national treasure and I wish him well.
