Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Everything that a fan could want from a Star Wars movie and then some.
LIFE ITSELF opened in London and all over the United Kingdom this past weekend. Acclaimed British film critic, Mark Kermode, penned a four-star review of Steve James' documentary about Roger Ebert for The Guardian. On the BBC Radio program, "Kermode and Mayo's Film Review," Kermode also delivered a wonderful five-minute analysis of the film while naming Ebert as "the great American humanist film critic."
In his written review, Kermode calls "Life Itself," "a lovely, insightful film" that's "a splendidly watchable tribute to a truly cinematic life. I laughed, I cried; I was inspired and uplifted. Thumbs Up!" He also calls Roger's wife, Chaz, "a magnificent presence – an example of the best in human nature, a subject to which Ebert returned compulsively in his writing." The radio review delves much deeper into the precise reasons why Kermode holds Ebert in such high esteem, praising him for his ability to merge his expertise on film with his cumulative life experience, making each review a work of personal and expressive art unto itself.
