Link: Great Moments in Film by Roger Ebert

Excerpts:

A knight plays chess with Death, in Bergman’s “The Seventh Seal.”

The baby carriage bouncing down the steps in Eisenstein’s “Battleship Potemkin.”

The moment in Akira Kurosawa’s “High and Low” when a millionaire discovers that it was not his son who was kidnapped, but his chauffeur’s son – and then the eyes of the two fathers meet.

The computer Hal 9000 reading lips, in “2001: a Space Odyssey.”

Parts of this list made me experience such a joy I almost wanted to cry, the scenes he has mentioned really capture cinema’s power.
