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