5.0 out of 5 stars Must See!
January 13, 2018
During the time this movie portrays I was actually somewhere else totally focused on trying to keep me and my troops stay alive versus what was happening at home. So, I will not comment on the historical accuracy of this movie or how much artistic license Mr. Spielberg, et al., took with actual facts. But, I saw it yesterday in the theaters and, as art, I thought it was fantastic!!!
As for another, very critical reviewer's criticism of how the actual "facts" were portrayed by the movie, I wonder how much time he spent in the theater watching the movie versus in the restroom writing his review.
As for Mr. Hanks and Ms. Streep, I thought they were "spot on" to the mental images (from reputation only) I have of them! (But, two confessions here: (1) I have never met the real Ms. Graham nor the real Mr. Bradlee; and (2) I am a huge fan of Mr. Hanks, but not so much as to Ms. Streep.)
The messages the movie attempts to make (and, I think successfully) resonate today. While I wish some segments of the press today were as faithful to the diligent search for truth (and properly sourced reporting) as the New York Times and Washington Post reporters were in the movie, the all-out attacks on the legitimate press and freedom of the press I saw when I returned home 45 or so years ago and see today are not at all dissimilar. If for no other reason, that is reason this movie is worth a watch especially if you did not live through that era in American history.
I am frankly astounded with all the negative customer reviews of this movie. (As would be the full theater I was in who applauded at "The End".)Maybe the messages did not resonate with the customer reviewers and this is their way to register disagreement. To bad that being "open-minded" today is not in vogue. Frankly, when I learned about the Supreme Court's "Pentagon Papers" decision, I was very unhappy that it could potentially put me and my troops in danger. But, I came to appreciate that our First Amendment dictated the decision the Supreme Court made. If you do not like that, fine. Change or abrogate the first Amendment, but don't castigate a movie for it.
