Ebert hasn’t said much about the Oscar race this year but he did briefly today:
I was watching Tony Scott on the Charlie Rose program, and he said, in connection with “The Reader,” that he was getting tired of so many movies about the Holocaust. I didn’t agree or disagree. What I thought was, “The Reader” isn’t about the Holocaust. It’s about not speaking when you know you should.
And then Ebert talks a lot about not speaking up when he should.
