Quick Hit Reviews
'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 cultural force despite it.
I was truly moved by this film. The inspiration to keep going when life gets you down. I also was shocked at how much an A-Hole he was. If you're looking for a documetry that never loses its audiace you need to check out Life Itself.
So no bloody brains for this movie just a big THUMBS up.

Sorry but this only gets
