All three outlets have their top three films in common (though in differing orders): "Inside Llewyn Davis," "12 Years a Slave" and "Before Midnight."

Film Critic Karina Longworth Leaves the L.A. Weekly

Friday December 14 is film critic Karina Longworth's last day at the LA Weekly. Three years ago she went to the Weekly, owned by Village Voice Media, to replace Scott Foundas when he split --overloaded and exhausted--to try his hand at programming at the Film Society of Lincoln Center. It is no coincidence that Longworth is now leaving as New York-based Foundas returns to film criticism to replace Jim Hoberman, although she does not say that Foundas has anything to do with her departure.
