Kottke linked to the new Roger Ebert documentary that premieres later this year on July 4. I loved following Roger on Twitter when he was alive. More than most celebrities, he was always full of opinions – some that I didn’t agree with (but learned more about someone else’s point of view). I found may great obscure facts and movies from him.
Earlier in life, I always looked forward to and loved a good Siskel and Ebert episode – especially when it featured a movie I was particularly looking forward to. I was always crushed when they gave a thumbs down to something I wanted to be good and soared when they liked a Star Trek or David Lynch film. I will be watching the documentary when it comes out, and I hope you do too.
