Roger Ebert can't be stopped Overlooked Film Festival: Ebertfest '07

America's most famous art critic, Roger Ebert, is recovering from cancer of the salivary gland. As part of the surgery to remove the cancer, he had part of his jaw removed and a tracheostomy. He can't speak, his mouth droops and he's wearing bandages.

But like Robocop, Terminator and John McLean, he can't be stopped. Roger Ebert is still going to attend his Ninth Annual Overlooked Film Festival (aka Ebertfest '07), which runs April 24 -29, 2007, despite suggestions that he will be mocked in the press. Kudos to him for having the courage and the passion to continue to support what he believes in, despite what others might think.

And what are the overlooked movies? Here's the list of films at Ebertfest '07:
The Weather Man
Perfume: The Story of a Murderer
Sadie Thompson
Come Early Morning
La Dolce Vita
Freddie Mercury: Lover of Life, Singer of Songs: The Untold Story
Man of Flowers
Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus
Beyond the Valley of the Dolls
