Friend and author John Kenneth Muir expresses what I can’t. And in a way that does justice for the TV/film critic who became much more than that to multiple generations of viewers and readers.
“I grew up watching Roger Ebert on Sneak Previews (PBS) and then on the syndicated At the Moviesand finally on Siskel and Ebert at the Movies. When I went to university in the late eighties, I took several of his Year Film Review books with me…and devoured them. His movie reviews were addictive, and informative. I especially liked how Mr. Ebert approached each movie he reviewed with humor, with passion, with fairness, and with abundant love.”
