    (circa 1953- )
    Born in Detroit, Michigan
    Film and music critic for the alt-weekly 'New York Press'
    Two-time chair of the New York Film Critics Circle (1994,2009)
    He has been accused of going against the critical consensus just to be contrarian.
    Roger Ebert declared, 'White is, as charged, a troll; a smart and knowing one, but a troll.'
    He denounces internet reviewers for lacking the 'education, expertise and experience' of professionals.
    In his negative review of 'Toy Story 3,' he misidentified Hamm the piggy bank as one of the film's new villains. (Thank goodness for that professional critic expertise.)
    In a review of 'Mr. Jealousy,' he suggested that director Noah Baumbach's mother should have had an abortion.
    He called the Sundance Film Festival 'penny ante shit,' then served on the Sundance jury.
    Considering that Ebert may be the only critic who liked 'Speed 2,' you'd think he might cut a contrarian some slack.
    In his negative reviews, he tells you what films he thinks covered the same ground better.
    He has received death threats from overly obsessed fans of some of the movies he panned.
    He said, 'I don’t say these things to call attention to myself or to get a rise out of people. I say them because I believe them.... People don’t need to hear what mouthpieces for the movie industry tell them.'
