Manohla Dargis Leaves LA for the NY Times…but not really.

This weekend marks the debut of film critic Manohla Dargis for the Grey Floozie, who recently poached her from the LA Times. But her first review is for the awesome “Collateral” (including a spot-on explanation of exactly why Tom Cruise does not suck), which is another of Michael Mann‘s blood-soaked valentines to LA. And it turns out that MD hasn’t actually left our fair city, but is telecommuting.

It also turns out that one of her major reasons for making the switch: Calendar Live’s subscription policy.

So, good luck in your new city, old city, new…er..good luck in filling Elvis’s dreadlocks.
