It looks like the paper he writes for (the New York Press) has cut way back on movie reviews: Two in the last month and a half, written by someone else.

Apparently the Press is defunct (though its website is still up) and he was given an editor's job at another paper owned by the same company (City Arts) which doesn't seem to do many reviews versus feature articles.

I always said he would have been a perfect replacement for Gene Siskel; listened to his audio commentary for "Let's Do It Again", and he does have a pretty wonderful voice and verbally expressed himself well. I'm sure, though, that he's "seen the light" in that film criticism has been becoming a just-about-obsolete thing in this day and age.

Even if he had "seen the light", he is too much of a contrarian to let such a setback as the creeping obsolescence of his profession stop him. He'll want to be the last guy insulting readers from the grave.

Well, setting up your own webpage is fairly cheap, so the fact that he hasn't done so yet gives the impression that deep inside he knows hardly anyone would frigging visit it. He must be raging that he hasn't been able to review the new The Thing for New York Press just as an excuse to slam John Carpenter, who, like David Cronenberg, he's always despised.

I don't think Rex Reed will have to worry about a similar thing, though -- New York Observer has been a longtime Big Apple staple like the Village Voice.
