R.I.P Roger Ebert (1942 - 2013)

Thursday, 04 April 2013 21:06

The world of film criticism has suffered a massive loss today as legendary film critic Roger Ebert has passed away, aged 70. Ebert was the most famous and influential film critic of his time, becoming the first journalist to win the Pulitzer prize and, through his weekly television show with fellow critic Gene Siskel, brought film criticism into the mainstream consciousness. After years of ill-health, Ebert announced earlier this week that he would be taking a 'leave of presence' due to a recurrence of cancer, which ultimately lead to his death at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago early Thursday afternoon.
