'Life Itself' is a prime example of how to properly tribute an individual in a documentary film. I've always been aware of Roger Ebert's history, but never have I seen this much personal material on him. You get nothing less than the honest truth. All of his good and bad traits are shown without filter. We see him grow and mature in his career and as a person. It's all insightful and meaningful. However, the real intimacy comes from the filming of his final days. The words exchanged feel so beautiful, so poignant, so real, that you'd swear this was candid camera. That's the beauty of Ebert. He wanted to show exactly how it is, and he got his wish.

Siskel and Ebert are in heaven right now still reviewing movies. I like it when Documentary's show you something you didn't really know about, I didn't know Roger was a alcoholic until I watched the Documentary and they is one part in the Documentary when there talked about Gene Siskel death and it was truly upsetting and really powerful that I almost cried and you will too if you get a chance to watch it. The score was so classy and so nostalgic that I loved it.
