President Obama released this statement: "For a generation of Americans — especially Chicagoans — Roger was the movies. When he didn’t like a film, he was honest; when he did, he was effusive — capturing the unique power of the movies to take us somewhere magical. The movies won’t be the same without Roger, and our thoughts and prayers are with Chaz and the rest of the Ebert family."
