Roger Ebert

Roger Ebert is perhaps the best known film critic in the world. He has helped shape the future of not only film criticism, but also the art of film itself through his very words. Esquire has just published what is likely the definitive article on Roger Ebert. The following is an excerpt:

It has been nearly four years since Roger Ebert lost his lower jaw and his ability to speak. Now television’s most famous movie critic is rarely seen and never heard, but his words have never stopped… Ebert takes joy from the world in nearly all the ways he once did. He has had to find a new way to laugh — by closing his eyes and slapping both hands on his knees — but he still laughs.And he still finds joy in books, and in art, and in movies — a greater joy than he ever has. He gives more movies more stars.
