It's fitting that the greatest movie critic of all time be remembered in the medium he knew and loved so well. Hailed as "[d]eeply enthralling" (Entertainment Weekly) and a "surprisingly funny film that will leave you moved" (Star), Life Itself recounts the inspiring and entertaining life of world-renowned film critic and social commentator Roger Ebert. By turns personal, funny, painful and transcendent, the 2014 documentary explores the legacy of Ebert's life, from his Pulitzer Prize-winning film criticism at the Chicago Sun-Times to becoming one of the most influential cultural voices in America. This loving and critically acclaimed tribute was created by award-winning director Steve James (Hoop Dreams) along with executive producers Martin Scorsese (The Departed) and Steven Zaillian (Moneyball).

The story of Joe [Dallesandro] and his lover-protector, Holly [Woodlawn], who is something to behold, a comic book Mother Courage who fancies herself as Marlene Dietrich but sounds more like Phil Silvers. Joe and Holly try to make a go of things in their Lower East Side basement, from which Holly goes forth from time to time to cruise the Fillmore East and to scavenge garbage cans, while Joe’s journeys are in search of real junk…
