I’ve always felt a kinship with film critic Roger Ebert. I preferred his informed writing to his famous “thumbs up” TV persona. I lost enthusiasm for cinema when his tenure on “At The Movies” ended in 2006 and his film reviews became infrequent. I’ve only recently rediscovered my passion for cinema though the quality of recent films may have played a part.
I hope you have some time to read this story about Roger, his challenges with thyroid cancer, his ever blossoming passion for cinema and the discovery of a new voice after he lost the use of his vocal cords.
