    Word was, back in the fat days, Ebert would rest his head on his chunk; Spotted during 'Raging Bull' at the i-house (Philly). And, as you know, God himself called it one of the "great movies".

    Reminds of one of my favorite New York stories: Armond White sitting three seats away from me, dozing, head flipped back over the chair, at the NYFF press screening of DOGVILLE, for about 1/3 of the film. The eventual review? "One of the most fatuous movies ever made."
