‘Life Itself,’ ‘Snowpiercer’ lead Indie Film Series
In “Life Itself,” the documentary about late Chicago Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert, one of his peers brags that the Pulitzer Prize-winner could crank out a well-thoughtout review in half an hour. This piece, dear reader, took significantly longer than that, but if Ebert had lived long enough to review the visionary thriller “Snowpiercer” — and been brazen enough to combine it with an analysis of his own film — I’d be willing to bet it wouldn’t have been one of his quickies. Both films play this month at Studio C! as part of the Indie Film Series.
