R.I.P., Roger Ebert

Wow. Rest in peace, Mr. Ebert. I still feel everything (and then some) that I said a few years ago in this brief post about him. It's hard to fully articulate his influence on me, countless others, and film criticism in general.

Chicago critic and filmmaker Ignatiy Vishnevetsky also has a beautiful, unsentimental piece at MUBI about his relationship with Ebert and time logged as co-host of Ebert Presents: At the Movies
