Movie City News’ Last Film Critics in America list (which stood at 121 when it was last updated in March ’09) didn’t include Washington Times film critics Sonny Bunch and Kelly Jane Torrance. That’s a moot point now because Torrance and Bunch got whacked yesterday, according to a 1.1.10 e-mail from Bunch. “Economics and all that,” he says. “They liquidated the entire arts/features desk.”

Sean P. Means, keeper of the Salt Lake Tribune‘s film critic departed list, should take note. The most recent update I could find of this article/topic is from last May, when Means reported about the dismissal of the Arizona Star‘s Phil Villarreal. (Who has since landed a new film critic gig with OK magazine.) The Salt Lake Tribune‘s search engine sucks eggs.
