A few weeks before he passed away, Roger Ebert emailed director Ramin Bahrani some questions for an interview about his new movie, "At Any Price." As it turned out, they were the last questions Ebert asked a filmmaker. The results have now been published at RogerEbert.com, but even better than the interview itself is a very personal letter written by Bahrani to Ebert on the news of his death. Ebert was an early and frequent champion of Bahrani, giving each of his last four movies four star reviews and calling him "the new great American director."
