3 Years on, 5 viewings and it gets me everytime

I cannot fault this film and I really should have reviewed this earlier.

Having recently been very disappointed with this years 'The Post' I went back to watch I see as the definitive investigative journalist movie. After 5 viewings I felt I needed to pay the cast, crew and director some very small payback in recommending it to anyone reading an IMDB review some 3 years after release.

This movie has a scene I will never get over. The Mark Ruffalo outburst. I remember clearly at the Cinema literally grabbing the arms of the chair as I felt the character's emotion and angst. Hell, I laugh and cry and many movies but that scene, this creation, stirs emotions I have never felt watching a movie.

The movie is pretty much faultless. What a story, what a movie. It deserved so many more Oscars that it received. I have no doubt whatsever it will stand the test of time.

Please watch it.

Must-watch

Shook me to make myself more useful to the world! It shows how often we blame others but sometimes don't do our parts ourselves. It's never to late to do our part and make ourselves useful!

Authentic, well acted and important piece of filmmaking

A film that was on my 'Haven't got round to seeing it yet' list. Until now.

Journalists at the Boston Globe investigate sexual abuse of children by local Roman Catholic priests- and uncover much more.

This is based on a true story and feels authentic and not over-dramaticised for the big screen.

The locales are pinpoint perfect too. Note the cramped offices of The Globe compared to the splendid locations frequented by the higher echelons of the church and those paid to defend them. Corruption pays well- but only if you have no soul.

Notice also the Boston street scenes- this is a film that loves the city.

The performances are also amazing. Mark Ruffalo deserves special praise here- the best performance I've seen in a film in a long, long time. Batman was pretty damn great too :)

A brilliant film that indeed casts the spotlight onto the darkest of places. This deserves all of the many accolades it received and continues to receive.
