Yes, Jim Hoberman is terrific, too.
But unfortunately I don't see the Village Voice very often these days.

I would second Peter's recommendation of Dave Kehr. It is hard to teach 
film reviewing because there are many different "schools." My profs 
included people who wrote for the Village Voice and the NYT, so I 
tended to follow those publications, even if some of my colleagues were 
Kael fans. But I grew up on the Chicago Reader (thus Kehr), so I would 
now probably recommend Jonathan Rosenbaum (Reader) and J. Hoberman 
(Voice), both of whom write well and review a lot of Japanese films.
