City Paper has a rotating cast of all-star film critics who review movies big and small in the paper and online. With the nominees for the 91st Academy Awards coming out this week, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to sit down with one of our critics and talk about some of the biggest movies of the year. Film critic and City Paper contributor Alan Zilberman chats with arts editor Matt Cohen about the nominees for Best Picture. And yes, they assign a letter grade to every film and fight about A Star Is Born.

Host Will Warren also talks about the latest news in D.C. politics, including Metro fare evasion and Michael A. Brown‘s potential return to politics.
