The Sobering, Beautiful Lessons of LIFE ITSELF

I almost didn’t write this review. This was not because I didn’t appreciate the film at hand, but because a question was nagging at me: What can I bring to this piece that will both serve the work and be memorable for its readers, personal in some sense?

Remembering Roger Ebert (1942-2013)

It was the same ritual every year. It was usually late October, maybe early November. You’d go to the mall where there was a bookstore, usually a Walden Books. (This was before Borders and Barnes & Noble were in every shopping center.) The section devoted to “Film” was one shelf, not a wall.

VIDEO ESSAY: Siskel and Ebert: Screen Fighting Men

Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert were journalists, film reviewers, TV personalities and friends. They disliked each other and loved each other.
