Life Itself

Famed film critic Roger Ebert speaks his mind in this biographical documentary based on his bestselling memoir of the same name. Director Steve James (Hoop Dreams) started filming mere months before Ebert passed away from complications of thyroid cancer. Despite the loss of his voice (he answers questions via email), Ebert remains a vivid, colorful character. The film splits its time between Ebert's unapologetic life story and his rough final days--but it's hard not to leave with the impression that the guy lived exactly the sort of life he wanted. 120 minutes R.
