Tavis Smiley interview


Ebert discusses her involvement in the new documentary, Life Itself, about her late husband,  film critic Roger Ebert.

But I think that his philosophy on life, on empathy, on walking in another person’s shoes, you know, trying to get into the head of a person of a different race, a different gender, different circumstances, different economic situation, having empathy, you know, being your brother’s keeper, your sister’s sister, that’s what I hope. I mean, things like that are really the things that I think are the most important.

Maxim Interview


Ebert talks about the impact his role as a movie critic had on movie viewers:

I think we put the notion into the minds of some kids that they wanted to grow up to be movie critics. If we did, that was our great success. I don’t mean they did do it for a living, but that at a young age they learned to be more demanding about the movies they saw.
