Shout-Out: Roger Ebert Eulogy at

Like any film buff worth his salt, Roger Ebert’s recent passing has had a dramatic effect on me. Ebert, more than any other film critic, made me see film analysis both as something that I could do and as something that I could never master. My colleague in the film-blogging game Danny Reid wrote a nice panegyric yesterday that explains Ebert’s effect on him. I’d have the same sentiments if I could articulate them as well as he does. So go check it out!

While I have you here, check out one of my favorite of Ebert’s takedowns of a guy at Sundance who cavils about a movie made by Asian-Americans that doesn’t “properly” represent their people.
