Matt writes: On August 2nd, Chaz Ebert announced that RogerEbert.com is gender balancing its regular rotation of film critics. Nell Minow, Monica Castillo and Tomris Laffly join Sheila O’Malley and Christy Lemire to round out the website’s roster of female critics to achieve a fifty-fifty split of five women and five men. The site also will publish more frequent contributions by diverse critics, including Castillo and Odie Henderson, who bring valued perspectives from their Cuban- and African-American roots. Minow has also been appointed the website's first female assistant editor.

Matt writes: One of the most praised films on RogerEbert.com this year has been David Lowery's audacious and unforgettable "A Ghost Story," reuniting the director with his "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" stars Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck. Brian Tallerico praised the picture upon his initial viewing of it at Sundance, and programmed it as the closing night selection at this year's Chicago Critics' Film Festival, where it played to a packed house. Tallerico later interviewed Lowery for the site, while Matt Zoller Seitz awarded the film four stars. Also worth a look is Noah Gittel's recent essay on Lowery and the "cinema of narrative displacement."
