    Sheila writes: Terrence Malick has spent his career capturing the beauty of waving treetops, sunsets, reflections on water, shadows and sunlight. Vugar Efendi has put together a beautiful and hypnotic video, weaving together the natural scenes in Malick’s films. You can see the video below. Roger Ebert, of course, paid close attention to Malick's films over the years, "Badlands," (in his Great Movies collection),  "Days of Heaven" , "The Thin Red Line",
    "The New World", "The Tree of Life", and finally "To the Wonder", the last review Roger wrote. Those who found "Badlands" and "Days of Heaven" unforgettable had to endure a long wait for Malick's next film, "The Thin Red Line," and then an even longer wait (20 years!) for "The New World." Malick's films are always events. In Roger's review for "Days of Heaven," he wrote: "This is a movie made by a man who knew how something felt, and found a way to evoke it in us." Efendi's video evokes it yet again.

    Roger Ebert's Birthday

    Sheila writes: Roger's birthday was on June 18th, and paid tribute in a series of essays written by contributors. You can check them all out via the Table of Contents. Chaz Ebert wrote a touching tribute (with accompanying video-essay by Far Flung Correspondent Krishna Shenoi) called Happy Birthday, Roger Ebert, My Superhero.

    Paul Cox: 1940-2016

    Sheila writes: Director Paul Cox, regular guest at Ebertfest, including the most recent festival, died on June 18, 2016 (Roger's birthday, an uncanny moment of symmetry). Peter Sobczynski has written a beautiful tribute to Cox, one of Roger's favorite artists. Chaz Ebert has also written a tribute, including an article from 2009: "I can respect the stupidity of people who think that speed is beauty," agrees Paul Cox. Here's a list of all of Roger's reviews of Cox's films. In his review of Cox's 2002 film "Innocence," Roger wrote, "Paul Cox's "Innocence" is like a great lifting up of the heart. It is all the more affirming because it is not told in grand phony gestures, but in the details of the daily lives of these two people. Life accumulates routines, obligations, habits and inhibitions over the years, and if they are going to face their feelings then they're going to have to break out of long, safe custom and risk everything."
