Roger Ebert Rates Porn

The X-rated Roger Ebert:

Roger Ebert used to review porn movies. No, this was not a third-string assignment, nor was he moonlighting for Hustler or Oui. He saw them in his capacity as esteemed first-string film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times.

The article includes snippets of some of Ebert’s reviews, including Vixen (“…is not only a good skin-flick, but a merciless put-on of the whole genre”), The Devil in Miss Jones (“This is the first porno movie I’ve seen that actually seems to be about its leading character – instead of merely using her as the object of sexual variations”), and Emmanuelle (“…may be the first movie influenced by magazine centerfolds”).
