On this week's Voice Film club podcast, L.A. Weekly chief film critic Amy Nicholson, Village Voice film critic Stephanie Zacharek and Voice film editor Alan Scherstuhl discuss two movies opening this weekend, including the James Franco'd Palo Alto, which we fully recommend, and the latest version of the West Memphis Three story, this time in the form of a dramatic feature called Devil's Knot. This podcast is an hour, which is about 15 minutes longer than normal, so play this on your long commute.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
