Ebert reviews Spider, the new

Ebert reviews Spider, the new Cronenberg movie. It seems to me that Cronenberg movies are the quintessential examples of the Roger Ebert 3-Star Movie: ambitious, avant garde, and bold, but ultimately flawed by uneven narrative and clumsy handling of a significant portion of the film. Ebert is too forgiving of these types of films. He rarely uses 2 1/2 stars, which would probably be more appropriate. Can Cronenberg make a great movie? Can David Fincher? They suffer the same malady: Three-Star-Movie Syndrome.
