My dinner with André (1981)

Roger Ebert in 1999:

Someone asked me the other day if I could name a movie that was entirely devoid of clichés. I thought for a moment, and then answered, “My Dinner With Andre.”

This was the call sign for me to watch this movie. It is very good. If you’re done with the movie, go and read the article above (but not before). Next up: Vanya on 42nd street (1994) and A Master Builder (2013). The three films got a simultaneous release recently in the summer by Criterion.
