The Post. Steven Spielberg. 2017. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Top-tier Streep. Movie hinges on her ability to perform thinking and she nails it. This is corny-as-fuck propaganda, but not the worst I've seen, not by a long shot. Reciting Justice Black's wisdom re: the Grand Importance of Journalism was incredibly grating. Instead of Watergate, the postscript might've been "The Post's" editorial board penning their '03 endorsement of the Iraq War (entitled "Irrefutable"). Alas.
