Joblo | 'Spotlight' Review


The ultimate tragedy of Spotlight is two-fold in that the Catholic Church cover-ups continue, as does the abuse, and also that newsrooms like the one depicted here are in short supply nowadays with the death of print journalism. It's crazy how much of a period piece this feels like despite it only taking place in 2001/2002, but sure enough that's what it is. In the end, Spotlight is the rare piece of entertainment that feels absolutely essential, in that it tells a story that needs to be told and also celebrates they kind of ordinary heroism embodied by the “spotlight” team. This is film-making at its best and an absolute must-see.

The story is too old to be commented.
