Doug Cummings is one of those friends made through the Internet: he lives in LA, i'm here in NYC, but there is a steady exchange of information via e.mails. However, last weekend, he was in NYC (though we didn't get a chance to meet) attending the Museum of the Moving Image's critical institute, a five-day seminar in which people who write about film from around the country converge to discuss the state of film criticism at this time. To read about Doug's New York adventure, check out his blog: http://filmjourney.weblogger.com/. It's fascinating and instructive, since this happened just as everyone has been on edge about the recent firings/layoffs/buyouts across the country, with 28 (last count) film critics losing jobs.
