    "Life Itself" is a stunning, beautiful, amazing documentary about the life - and death - of Roger Ebert. Much of it is filmed in Ebert's hospital room. Along the way, we meet Gene Siskel, and see their sometimes abrasive collaboration - with a few outtakes from that show.

    And there's a jigsaw puzzle of almost unbelievable provenance.
