Two more critics

Does anybody read Time or Newsweek any longer? Apparently, some people must, as both of them can still afford to pay movie critics. Those critics: Richard Corliss from Time and David Ansen from Newsweek are responsible for tonight's selections as part of TCM's Critics' Choice. For the most part, the selection of movies is a bit pedestrian.

Corliss goes first, and has chosen:
Citizen Kane at 8:00 PM ET, followed by
The Seventh Seal at 10:15 PM, in which Max von Sydow plays a game of chess against Death as seen in the photo at left.

As for Ansen, he's chosen
The Third Man at midnight; and
The Earrings of Madame De... at 2:00 AM, a French movie about a bunch of people who all wind up owning the same pair of earrings and how this symbolizes their betrayals of one another.
