I have a feeling I’ll be liking SPOTLIGHT more and more every time I see it.
Maybe it’s the former journalist in me, but watching a group of smart, flawed, dedicated reporters taking on a story, (in this case the cover-up of pedophelia in the Boston Archdiosis) and unlocking it piece by piece is just so satisfying, inspiring and moving to see.
It’s a bracing reminder of what real journalists do real journalism can mean.
It doesn’t hurt there’s a murderer’s row of the best actors working today.
I’ve seen a lot of good movies in 2015… but I’m not sure I’ve seen one better. The best way I’ve come to think about it is a spiritual sequel to ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN. I cannot wait to find a Saturday afternoon in a few months and have a great double feature.
