BookChums Tribute: R.I.P Roger Ebert

Post by: Snehith Kumbla

 

The death of Roger Joseph Ebert has brought an abrupt end to an era of brilliance in objective film criticism. Ebert lost his battle to cancer on April 4, 2013, he was 70. The first man ever to win a Pulitzer Prize for film criticism, Ebert also gained fame as a TV celebrity with co-host Gene Siskel, as they gave their trademark thumbs up and down to a movie.

 

It was Ebert's written reviews that brought his much acclaim, clear and precise as they were and always to the point. A writer is always sorely missed for there is something left incomplete when death comes visiting. Roger Ebert's death leaves a similar gap in the writing world.
