Roger Ebert

(The exchange below is from the unexpectedly moving documentary Life Itself, which chronicles Ebert's life.)

Question: How do you keep your spirits up?

"I've zeroed in on my work. When I'm seeing a movie or writing a review, that makes me feel good. You know how they talk about being in the zone? When you're doing something you're good at, you get in the zone. So it pushes your troubles to the back of your mind."
