Big news for those of us who care about criticism. From imdb:



"Elvis Mitchell has quit as film critic for The New York Times, reportedly miffed at Executive Editor Bill Keller's decision to name Mitchell's colleague A.O. Scott lead film critic. Today's (Tuesday) "Rush and Molloy" column in the New York Daily News says that although the newspaper has been trying to convince Mitchell to return, they may have been unaware that he had been talking to Columbia Pictures President Amy Pascal about running the studio's New York office even while he was reviewing the studio's films. "He never said a word to the people at The Times," a source told the Daily News. "If they knew the truth, they may not have wanted him [to return]."

Sad news indeed. I love both Mitchell and A.O. Scott.
