Critics Laud The Post As 2018's Best Movie!

With The Post, Spielberg's skills are put to a goal: Tom Hanks plays Ben Bradlee, the chain-smoking, gray-suited editor of the Washington Post.

There are galley proofs and sub editors who use really big pencils, and copy is rolled up and whooshed around the building in vacuum tubes. McNamara ordered an in depth study of the nation's strategy in Vietnam that concluded no matter what is done the USA will fail.

The Papers were eventually released when a proponent of the publication, US Senator Mike Gravel, entered the documents into an unrelated subcommittee of his. We get Alison Brie as Kay's daughter, David Cross as a Post editor, and Zach Woods as a Post lawyer.

And, if all that's not enough, it's helmed by Steven Spielberg, one of the few directors alive whose name implies "cinematic importance". It is Liz Hannah's first screenplay.

"That's the voice of the leader", the Oscar-winning actress continued.

Set in 1971 in Washington, D.C., Spielberg's "The Post" is based on the fascinating true story of the Pentagon Papers, a revealing and extensive series of documents that exposed backroom USA involvement in Vietnam stretching back to the Truman administration. I mean, even Steven Spielberg was in awe. Early on, Graham's unsure of herself. The film explores that in depth. Bradlee is a no-nonsense journalist.

This Dark Souls Trilogy Box Set announced for Japan is rather cool
And let's not forget the fact that you have to save and quit to the main menu each time you want to reconnect in a Souls game. According to Bandai Namco, there are no plans to release the Dark Souls trilogy box set "in the Americas".

One thing that most insiders, critics, pundits and casual movie fans can agree on, though, is that five-time victor and 50-time nominee John Williams will once again be in the mix come Oscar time for his latest sure to be majestic film score. And this role of Ben Bradlee, in particular, has a dynamism. The most visually dynamic the movie ever gets involves the setting of hot type - so quaint! - and the rattle of printing presses running off the next morning's newspaper. And the story of the defiance of the New York Times and the Washington Post of a repressive presidency's attempts to silence them could not have been timed better. There are many plot points to cram into a film that runs just under two hours but he does so without slowing things to a crawl or feeling too rushed. Though you can - at times - nearly smell the ink on the freshly printed newspapers, Spielberg does this one in a more paint-by-numbers fashion than director Tom McCarthy did with the nail-biting Spotlight or Alan Pakula did with the now classic Watergate thriller All the President's Men. Seriously, I had goosebumps on my arms watching tied-up bundles of newspapers being tossed onto trucks about to bring Truth to the world. I've worked as a journalist most of my life and have been an avid reader of papers since I was a kid. The movie's challenge is the journalism story, which is not as clear-cut as Watergate and is therefore harder to dramatize. I remembered the basic story, but I didn't know any of the details that this film filled in. The rest of you ought not miss it either.

Rating • PG-13 for language and brief war violence. It's playing at Regal's Columbia Center 8, the Fairchild Cinemas Pasco and Queensgate 12s and at Walla Walla Grand Cinemas.

You have already seen Star Wars.

The White House requesting a movie has been a longtime practice in many past administrations - but the fact that the people in this White House want to see this movie is striking.

0 stars: Speaks for itself.
