Iconic film director Steven Spielberg said in a statement: "Roger loved movies. They were his life. His reviews went far deeper than simply thumbs up or thumbs down.  He wrote with passion through a real knowledge of film and film history, and in doing so, helped many movies find their audiences. Roger’s passing is virtually the end of an era and now the balcony is closed forever."
