@Gary OldMan: judge Ebert's own words for yourself and tell me whether he thought of these films as separate, unrelated films, or as one unified work:
"Ebert: I’ve often thought that if we had any piece of film at all from the year 1000 or the year 500 it would be fascinating to see. Or those first films in Paris of the people coming out of the Metro, when they were inventing the cinema. We would just look at those people and think, “Well now I’m looking at someone who was alive in 1898.” This project, as it continues and finally concludes and becomes a piece of film, 56 Up, 63 Up, 70 Up, then 100 years from now, 200 years from now, how fascinating this would be, what a film to show in a classroom 200 years from now."
Will air on British TV (ITV) on Tuesday 3rd June 2019..
With inflated self importance and extremely finite wisdom, the keepers of lists decided they could speak for the late Mr. Ebert and add the 2019 '63 Up' to his list.
This is wildly inappropriate, sacrilegious and arrogant. I don't understand how they could have thought this either necessary or a good idea.
Ebert's list should remain HIS list.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
