Clarke for a collaboration that would eventually yield "2001: A Space Odyssey," and on a sadder note, today marks one year since the death of Roger Ebert. But here's a way to celebrate both filmmaker and critic.

Stanley Kubrick

This week saw a couple of notable cinematic anniversaries: March 31st marked fifty years from they day Stanley Kubrick first penned a letter to Arthur C. Clarke for a collaboration that would eventually yield "2001: A Space Odyssey," and on a sadder note, today marks one year since the death of Roger Ebert. But here's a way to celebrate both filmmaker and critic.

In 1999, shortly after the release of "Eyes Wide Shut," Kubrick's thirteenth and final feature film, Ebert pulled together a roundtable of Chicago critics to discuss the films and career of the filmmaker. And for an entire episode, Ebert and co. zero in on Kubrick's work, themes, obsessions, imagery and much more. Can you imagine any nationally syndicated program now that would spend this much time on Kubrick or any filmmaker for an entire show? That was the pull Ebert had. Put your feet up and give it a watch below. [via Larry Wright]
