RIP Roger Ebert, 1942-2013

Roger Ebert had a tremendous impact on how I thought about criticism and how a review should be written, voiced, pitched. I didn’t always agree with the guy, but I loved watching his show (usually more than the films he and Siskel reviewed) and reading his reviews, and I loved following him on Twitter, where I’ll miss him most I guess.

    I think this is the first photo I’ve seen of him relating to his death that didn’t use a younger, healthier picture, and I’m glad to see it. He was never ashamed of the turns his body took, so why should it be avoided?
