22 May 2018 | Mr-Fusion
| Worth the cover price
Print media may be dead, but the crusader journalist movie is alive and well. "The Post" is just as much a paean to the newspaper's heyday as it is a warning against corrupt government, complete with top-shelf cast. Given the Washington Post's lasting legacy (to this day), you can easily tell that the Pentagon Papers weren't the certain doom they seemed to spell out for the paper. Yet Spielberg jumps right into the material, creating excitement even in mundane printing press scenes. This is a stirring tale, masterfully directed and timelier than ever. Sure, it's probably Oscar-bait, but you can't argue with that level of quality.

With her Academy Award nomination for Best Actress for The Post (2017), this is the first time that Meryl Streep has been nominated for an Academy Award for a performance in a film nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards since Out of Africa (1985), a gap of 32 years, despite the fact she has been nominated 15 more times since then. She is also the first Best Actress nominee for a Steven Spielberg film since Whoopi Goldberg for The Color Purple (1985) in 1986 and the first woman to receive an acting nomination for a film directed by him since Sally Field for Lincoln (2012) in 2013.


Ben Bradlee: You know, the only couple I knew that both Kennedy and LBJ wanted to socialize with was you and your husband.


In several scenes, NY Times' Abe Rosenthal has visible lines showing along his forehead and hairline where the wig was glued down causing the skin to ripple and crease around it. The hairlines of the wigs on several other characters are also quite noticeable and distracting at times.

Crazy Credits

The DVD opens with the standard credits from the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security warning against pirating home video recordings and stating "Piracy is not a victimless crime," but the whole movie is about an individual who steals intellectual property and is presented as a hero for doing so.
