'Life Itself' demonstrates that Ebert had as fantastic an ability for recollection & nostalgia as he did with writing film reviews. I had expected more anecdotes when it came to his middle years & felt the series of interviews was a little disparate & didn't really cover the 1970s, 1980s or 1990s all that well. Nonetheless, what Ebert included was fantastically entertaining & I could easily read twice as many recollections written with his unique flair. Two thumbs up.
