Film Friday: Inquire Without

Anyone want Elvis Mitchell's old gig as a film reviewer for the New York Times? The job is cool, apparently. [Via Gawker.]
To the staff:

Culture is looking for another film critic, who could come from inside or outside the paper. The job is cool, but also very demanding, with regular and unrelenting deadlines.

A candidate should love the movies, know something about them and their history, have a wide range of tastes and interests -- as wide as the range of films themselves -- and write boldly, with a mix of empathy, wit and critical self-confidence. We are looking also for someone who can write essays and critic's notebooks, can find themes and threads through the mass of movies out there, and can help us all decide what we really want to see.
