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!

This documentary is wonderful! It creates emotion with the scenes of Ebert in hospita... read more

Ever since I heard about this movie, of course, I became really eager to watch it. 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

(Mu) Movies are not the theme; it is the enthusiasm of living thanks to words and immages. Ebert even congratulates James to film a 'suction' in his body in horrible close up. Y prefer the Siskel & Ebert analisis by friends and Siskel's widow.

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.

" Perhaps the best-known film critic gets his amazing life put into a worthwhile documentary. It's a beautiful, loving tribute to the man. "

"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."
