Roger Ebert RIP at 70


If you’re a writer, you have to like this man. Roger Ebert wrote tons of reviews, watched plenty of movies, but understood how to keep doing it and at the same time adapt to new technology and changing times. That might have been one of his better gifts. He also championed films from a wide spectrum of people and understood what the playing field was like for them and worked accordingly. I’m glad to have met him at the Hawaii International Film Festival. I’ll see him at the movies. (Chicago Sun Times – Roger Ebert)
