Roger Ebert On Taxi Driver

Gfw Staff,

Yesterday, the movie industry was hit with the deeply saddening news that one of the most prolific and influential movie critics of all time, the Pullitzer-prize winning Roger Ebert, had passed away at the age of 70. Tributes poured in from all directions: Steven Spielberg stated, "Roger's passing is virtually the end of an era," while Martin Scorsese called his death "an incalculable loss"; and even President Obama issued the touching statement: "Roger was the movies". So we'd like to take a moment to honour the man by showing him doing what he did best: arguing about movies with Gene Siskel on their long-running TV show, Siskel & Ebert, here discussing the use of violence in the now-classic Taxi Driver
