review reviews

I think that I might start a weblog devoted to the minor errors in Roger Ebert's film reviews. Lately, after watching a movie, I'll check out a few reviews. In almost every case, Ebert makes a not completely inconsequential error in relating the plot points.

It's so consistent that I almost think that it's intentional.


for instance:
Jeunet depicts this reality as well as I have ever seen it shown on the screen, beginning with his opening shot of a severed arm hanging, Christ-like, from a shattered cross.

The shot is of a broken statue of Christ on the cross, which seems different than a severed arm.
