Red Army

Emotionally charged, viscerally exciting and consistently enlightening, Gabe Polsky’s Red Army is a sports documentary like no other.

Son of a Gun

Avery’s more than capable behind the camera, he just needs to be met halfway by his screenwriting, which dwells in overly familiar territory.

News: National Society of Newspaper Columnists Honors Roger Ebert

On Saturday, June 28, 2014, The National Society of Newspaper Columnists chose to honor the writing of Roger Ebert within their annual column contest. At a ceremony held at Howard University in Washington, DC, Ebert's writing, which had won first place at this event before and had earned Roger the Ernie Pyle Lifetime Achievement Award, demanded attention yet again. He won third place in his category but only because he only had three months eligible in 2013, the period of his writing that proved to be his final one.

Roger Ebert was awarded in "Category E. Online, Blog and Multimedia Columns, Over 100,000 Monthly Unique Visitors," behind Mary C. Curtis of "The Washington Post" and Gendy Alimurung of "LA Weekly." The judge in the category was Chad Lorenz, News Editor of Slate. Chaz Ebert accepted Roger's award on his behalf.

Other winners on Saturday night included Ken Dixon of "Connecticut Post," Dan Zevin of "The New York Times," Eve Samples of Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers, Jerry Zezima of "The Advocate," and Darcy Perdu of "So Then Stories."
