Roger Ebert is one of the most influential film critics out there and everyone wishes him a speedy recovery, right?
SO ROGER, WTF IS UP WITH THAT ONE-STAR RATING FOR ABBAS KIAORASTAMI'S "TASTE OF CHERRY"? (End of shouting.) (Gigli received 2.5 stars, btw.)
How can this masterpiece be called "excruciatingly boring"?
"Taste of Cherry", in case you haven't seen it, is a fun-filled, comical depiction of a hapless dog trainer's attempts at reigning in a rambunctious dalmatian. It is the kind of a film every family should see together at Christmas, Thanksgiving, Yom Kippur and Dusshera.
I think Ebert was never more wrong. ToC is the reason why God invented cinema.
