The Departed
Roger Ebert had a way of making the complex into something simpler and bringing us with him from point A to point B — even when we weren't aware that B existed.

From Critical Reviewing Professor Andrea Heiss:

I first met Roger Ebert when I was a student at the University of Iowa and not, ironically, when I was at the Chicago Sun-Times, where he reviewed films for 46 years.

He was as genial, articulate, energetic and excited about films as a young man as he was during his last year of life.

It’s easy to forget that many film critics writing 30 years ago were in two opposite camps — the intellectuals, who analyzed the cerebral and aesthetic angles of film, and the popularizers, who examined their entertainment value.

Roger Ebert did both in a way that called attention to the film rather than to himself and in a language that spoke to everyone. He embraced all kinds of films, recognized their cultural impact and prodded his readers to care about the value of a film as well as develop critical standards.

As a recognition of his influence as a critic, Vox Scene department editors have selected 10 responses to 10 Ebert reviews of award-winning films from past three decades.

The chosen responses are written by students in a critical reviewing class who, like Ebert, love film.
