No good film is too long and no bad movie is short enough.
– Film Critic Roger Ebert (June 18, 1942 — April 4, 2013)
I’ve often wondered if Roger Ebert, who died today of cancer, ever had the misfortune of seeing an Indian movie.
The fact that Ebert lived up to 70 suggests he did not have to suffer the indignity of sitting through one of our Hindi, Tamil or Telugu atrocities.
After all, 99% of Indian movies are made by thieves and jackasses for philistines who wouldn’t recognize a classy film if it whacked them on the face!
