Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The Post was exciting because everyone onscreen and in the audience embraced the premise that the Post had news to tell that would turn the world on its ear. Sometimes at home watching TV I'm not sure what news is any longer.
Fresh: While physical newspapers may not be as much a part of American life as they used to be, the occasional films about their publication - such as "Zodiac," "State of Play," and "Spotlight" - continue to enthrall. Now, "The Post" can be added to the list.
Fresh: The people deserve the truth and not to be lied to, but "The Post" shows that is easier said than done, and it's harder than just writing a story and sending it to the presses.
Fresh: It's a fascinating tale that highlights the need for a strong media and how they should serve the people and not the government.
Outstanding representation of the Historical Events
Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks pair up to bring their considerable talents to this expose of what it means to “bring light to darkness”. The Pentagon Papers revealed the willingness of our elected officials to lie about their decisions to interfere in the civil war in Southeast Asia. This movie delivers a tense look into the courage of the people who chose to publish the facts collected in the Pentagon Papers. Stephen Spielberg deserves our sincere gratitude for rushing this journalistic gem to the screen. Don’t miss the opportunity to sink your teeth into this well written, thoughtfully photographed cinematic gift.
