Alison Willmore is the newly-hired Film Critic for BuzzFeed — and the first time that mighty site has created a position with “Critic” in the title. After dining at Golden State, on Fairfax, Ms. Wilmore and I talked about her new position, what criticism is in this modern era, the ambitious plans she and BuzzFeed have for her work, the merits of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” other Marvel movie matters, what makes a good burger, self-editing in the age of self-publishing and much, much more. Ms. Willmore can be found on Twitter @AlisonWillmore; the excellent podcast she co-hosts, “Filmspotting: SVU (Streaming Video Unit)” can be found here, as well.

Remember, The Lunch Podcast is available on iTunes; The Lunch Podcast is proudly sponsored by Snoot Films, makers of “Cheap Thrills” and the upcoming “The Guest.”
