Sheila writes: As I'm sure most of you know, April 4th marked the 3rd anniversary of Roger Ebert's death. There have been various tributes to him all week on Rogerebert.com, including an ongoing series called "Roger's Favorites." Throughout his career as a critic, Roger often championed actors and filmmakers, sometimes pointing them out to his audience before the wider culture had caught on. The editors at Rogerebert.com wrote essays on some of these favorites, and it's already become a rich archive. You can check out the full list here: Roger's Favorites: A Table of Contents.
