Rowdy Talk | TWO THUMBS UP

Rowdy Talks
Back To Film Guide

Panels and Events | 60 minutes

Once upon a time, if you wanted to know if a movie was worth seeing, you didn’t check out Rotten Tomatoes or IMDB. You wanted to know whether Siskel & Ebert had given it “two thumbs up.” Award-winning editor, film critic, and HIFF 2023 juror Matt Singer discusses his affectionate new book “Opposable Thumbs: How Siskel & Ebert Changed Movies Forever.” Join us for an enlightening conversation about the duo’s rise to fame, the legacy they left behind, and that legacy’s place in the current state of film criticism.


Featuring Matt Singer, Chair, New York Film Critics Circle
Moderated by David Schwartz, Film Curator
