The Wrap reports that former Variety chief film critic Todd McCarthy, who was cut from the trade paper as a cost-saving measure less than two months ago, has found a new home online — he’ll be writing a blog for indieWIRE called Deep Focus.
In his first post, McCarthy said he’s looking forward to embracing the less formal aspects of the new medium.
“With this new site, I will continue writing formal reviews of important new pictures, but the blog aspect will permit me to write about so many other things, from Hollywood personalities I encounter as a matter of course to observations about my son’s progress as a blossoming film buff. In this welcoming column alone, I’m able to write in the first person as I rarely could at Variety, and the possibility to expand the way I write about films and the film world is enormously energizing.”
