And an example of what Chris and Roger get across in the article, from Roger's blog:

Making out is its own reward by Roger Ebert on January 12, 2010

*That* is an example of not losing your voice.

The greatest films of all time

I am faced once again with the task of voting in Sight & Sound magazine's famous poll to determine the greatest films of all time. Apart from my annual year's best lists, this is the only list I vote in.

Ben W. Heineman Jr., who worked with Ebert when the two were just starting out with the Sun-Times, has some nice perspective about Ebert.

So does Will Leitch, who shares some lessons he learned in his interaction with Ebert.
