Now here's a proper celebration of Roger Ebert's life. Tilda Swinton, dressed like David Bowie and channeling Ellen DeGeneres rouses 1,500 people at Ebertfest in Champaign, IL to shake their money makers to Barry White's "My First, My Last, My Everything" at the Virginia Theater on April 20. (That's Ebert's widow Chaz introducing the actress.)
The film festival, which is organized by the College of Media at the University of Illinois where Ebert was an alumnus paid tribute to its namesake, who succumbed to cancer on April 4.
When he was alive, his prose danced just like Swinton.
