A powerful two thumbs up documentary

When you hear the word critic, who's the first critic you think of? I'm probably guessing Roger Ebert, who was and still is the most famous critic of all time! This documentary 'Life Itself', goes into Roger Ebert's life as a critic, his working with Gene Siskel and his 11 year battle with cancer!

Indeed, for more than 20 years, I have been a huge movie fan and, at some point, I guess a little bit less than 10 years ago, I stumbled accross those amazing reviews written by Roger Ebert. Eventually, I think I must have read 2000, maybe 3000 of his reviews and I always check them after I had watched a movie rel... read more

Description: 'Life Itself' recounts the surprising and entertaining life of world-renowned film critic and social commentator Roger Ebert - a story that's by turns personal, wistful, funny, painful, and transcendent. The film explores the impact and legacy of Roger Ebert's life: from his Pulitzer Prize-winning film criticism and his nearly quarter-century run with Gene Siskel on their review show, to becoming one of the country's most influential cultural voices, and finally to Roger's inspiring battles with cancer and the resulting physical disability - how he literally and symbolically put a new face on the disease and continued to be a cu ...

"Henkilöpalvonta on in. Nykyään kaikista voidaan näköjään tehdä lämminhenkinen dokumentti. Roger Ebert kieltämättä vaikutti sen sortin kusipäältä, että tällainen kuvan kiillottaminen kuoleman jälkeen tuntuu äärimmäisen kornilta. Toki jätkä varmaan jostain jotain tiesikin ja raivasi tietä kaikille kriitikoille, mutta silti tämä tuntuu aivan törkeältä egotripiltä. Kestoakin on vielä sellainen pari tuntia, josta olisi kyllä huolella voinut karsia juttuja pois."
