Two critics sitting together in a balcony arguing about movies. The first time I found them was on PBS's Sneak Previews. I watched them until I couldn't find them any longer. The two men in that balcony made me want to write about movies. Film fans around the world lost Gene Siskel in 1999.
The Chicago Sun-Times today announced the passing of film critic Roger Ebert. He was 70.
R.I.P. The balcony is closed.
