Hey, Movie Fans-
I am sure most of you have heard by now that Pultizer Prize-winning critic Roger Ebert died yesterday. Many of you know that I'm a huge fan. I've posted a couple things about him on our Message Board on meetup.com
— a personal "tribute" and a hard-to-find copy of my favorite of all his reviews.
I heard a clip from an interview with him this morning. What he said reminded me so much of our group's "mission" that I felt I had to share it with the group:
"My legacy — if there is one — will have to do with supporting films that people might not have seen and supporting directors that deserve support. Of course I review the big blockbusters and the commercial films, but from the very beginnings it's been very important to me to go out and look for independent films, documentaries, first films by young directors, and foreign films because those are the ones people need to hear about."
Hope to see you all soon!
