Filmweek (7/3/14): Tammy, Earth To Echo, Deliver Us From Evil, and more

Larry Mantle and KPCC film critics Claudia Puig and Henry Sheehan review this week’s releases, including Tammy, Earth To Echo, Deliver Us From Evil, the 50th anniversary release of A Hard Day's Night and more. TGI-Filmweek!

Then, documentarian Steve James talks with Larry about the new film and Roger Ebert's outsize influence on contemporary film criticism. His life and career is now the subject of the documentary, "Life Itself."

Whether you are an avid cinephile or a casual moviegoer, Roger Ebert is a name that needs no introduction. The former Chicago Sun-Times critic and television host passed away last April from cancer at the age of 70.
