Movie Review - The Post

The film is pretty mid level but Spielberg can block and shoot a scene.

I liked the film, but it honestly feels like something you'd watch in a high school history class. You can tell Spielberg is getting old. It's filled with the Spielberg cheesiness that I love and some social commentary that is a bit on the nose. I am totally for the messages presented in the film, but a lot of it seemed heavy handed, where I almost expected the actors to turn and wink at the camera. Almost felt like propaganda, but for my team.

The bulk of the movie, following all these people doing the reporting is quite exciting although I wish more time was dedicated to spending time with Daniel Ellsberg and some of the attempts to actually get the Pentagon papers out into the public record like Sen. Mike Gravel actually reading them on the senate floor. It's a tight movie but not expansive in the ways it could have been.

It's still probably worth the watch alone to see Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep directed by Steven Spielberg.
