Rev. Bruce Batchelor-Glader, East Ohio’s movie reviewer says, “Roger Ebert was a great critic, but that doesn’t mean that Life Itself is for everyone.  Let me be the first reviewer to suggest that you may not care for this movie at all.  At two hours in length, it’s a long film with more than a few problems for the general viewer.
