Roger Ebert's Legacy
One year ago, beloved film critic Roger Ebert died, leaving an empty seat in "the balcony" that may never be filled. Widely regarded as America's greatest movie critic, Ebert spent decades elevating film criticism to an art form in itself and helped change the way we look at motion pictures. With his film reviews in the Chicago Sun-Times, his program At the Movies with friend and rival Gene Siskel, and finally through his widely read website, Roger Ebert became an authority on what was worth watching on the silver screen. A year after his death, we look at how his memory and legacy continue to be important to the world of motion pictures and to our nation's love affair with the movies.
