It will certainly go down in history.
Theres nothing you can put your finger on here. Its certainly a curiosity - massively pushed in its day, a propaganda piece about press freedom - on paper it sounds amazing, in reality it is many flat vignettes.

Whether it was all the egos of such a stella cast, the anachronistic shoehorning of a contemporary small minded morality, or Spielberg phoning it in, for whatever reason (I get the impression he had his arm twisted here), and seemingly ignoring magnificent set design.

This was, in my humble opinion, supposed to be shot in the fifties style, though set in 71 - instead we have facinatingly set period pieces that we never linger on but glide, consistantly glide, through as if in some tranquilizer induced coma.

As I say, this is certainly a curiosity. Just look at the imdb score, and the many 10's, 9's and 8's it has. It really was a masterclass in hype, media bending mind control and, as ive said, pushing political narratives. Which, given the films topic, says a lot about our times. Very curious.
