    I’m desperate to watch this but the UK distributor, Dogwoof, hasn’t released the date yet! #drat

    Loved it! Great review, as well. Early contender for my favorite doc of the year.

    Though I wanted to get your opinion on something: I’ve read several reviews where the main complaint was that the film was too fawning and reverent of Ebert. Granted, the film was made by a friend of Ebert, but I couldn’t disagree more with the folks who think it was a bit too precious. But I’m not sure if my own affection for Ebert is clouding my judgement. What says you?

      I think plenty of time was given over to detailing his less pleasant personal attributes (arrogance especially) as well as to voices who academically disagree with his reviews and methodologies. It may not be an expose but it’s not a hagiography by any measure.

      – David
