The Post Tries To Hammer Its Somewhat Obvious Message.
The Post is Political Hollywood at its propaganda best. They're all there, the Press, Streep, Spielberg, the Academy, all shouting about the good deeds done by the press in the past (they virtually had to go back decades to Watergate and rehash a new take on 'All the Presidents Men'!) In the present climate, it could hardly be a more obvious attempt to squash the fact that the modern press has become a 'Fake' sham (and that President Trump remains fair game). Time to get over it - stop attempting to convince the voters that a possible corrupt system should be back in power - simply because it serves others selfish purposes. It's also a big push for the Washington Post, who only picked up on the groundbreaking hard work (already done ahead of them) by the New York Times. With the Post even using the same N.Y.T. informants leaked files.

The Awards given for this rather ordinary movie need explaining - Streep was simply Streep, Hanks has done far better work (without honours) beforehand. Spielberg was in his usual by-the-numbers mode and turned in an overlong (often boring movie) consisting of a string of round table talkfests (ie; sometimes small table, other times a larger table or a typical party scene) nothing special here. In fact, it all looks too obviously like an attempt to fool some of the people all of the time. Maybe it's time to move on and consider working together for the betterment of all.....

As James Goodale said on PBS News Hour during a summary of the movie:- with words along the lines of; "If doing a movie now (about newspapers) you want to be sure you're being authentic". Very good advice! Another insightful comment came from; Matt Bobkin, writing for Exclaim!, he gave the film a 6 out of 10 score, and went on to say; the film "has all the makings of an awards season hit, but is too calculated to reflect today's ragged, tenuous socio-political climate." Touché Matt..
