Life Itself - Close Up

Josh, Adam and guest Michael Phillips avoid turning into Norma Desmond's driveway for this week's Top 5: Movies About Fame (Non-Hollywood Edition). Plus, the trio offers some thoughts on the new Steve James documentary about Roger Ebert, LIFE ITSELF, and last weekend’s tragic passing of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman.

This episode is presented by Shutterstock (FILM214) and Warby Parker.
