Matt Singer - OPPOSABLE THUMBS... How Siskel & Ebert Changed Movies Forever
"The author’s fulsome praise aside, there’s no questioning that Siskel and Ebert were a cultural phenomenon,
and while it’s debatable that they “invented an entirely new kind of film criticism,” they certainly had an impact. Since
both critics were dead at the writing of this book, Singer relies on copious previously published accounts—and YouTube–archived
episodes of their shows—for their voices. Interviews with both men’s widows and with former production staff help flesh out the
history. Readers who recall Siskel and Ebert will be delighted by this opportunity to reminisce. "
