Werner Herzog, A.O. Scott, and Dana Stevens Remember Roger Ebert

Posted by Erik Henriksen on Tue, Apr 9, 2013 at 11:59 AM

On last night's Charlie Rose, two great critics—the New York Times' A.O. Scott and Slate's Dana Stevens—and one great filmmaker—Werner Herzog—got together to remember the late Roger Ebert. I can't think of three people I'd rather hear talk about Ebert's life*, and I'm listening to them do so now, and I encourage you to do the same.

*Not only do I like all of them a lot, but, to varying degrees, they all had ties with Ebert: Scott had early clashes with him before the two became friends, Stevens wrote him a fan letter as a kid (and got a great response), and it was Ebert to whom Herzog dedicated Encounters at the End of the World.
