The best movie review I have ever read

Roger Ebert’s essay on Akira Kurosawa’s Ikiru – it’s so well written, so passionate in its description of the movie, that it ranks among my favourite pieces of writing in general. A lot of what Ebert has written about the movies is brilliant, but his essay on Ikiru is, I think, his best work to date.
