The Post

The Post is the newest from Steven Spielberg. A period piece about the Washington Post publishing the Pentagon Papers in the early 70’s. Short review is it should be nominated for an Oscar in just about every category and shouldn’t win any of them. It’s everyone doing their standard excellent performance but for some reason the combined effort isn’t great. It’s one of the movies that needs the best picture category to be a possible of 10 not 5. It’s good but not memorable. It checks off all the boxes and can appeal to everyone, but it’s not beautiful art. Should you see it? I think so. You mean right now? Nah, when you get a chance. Who should see it? Just about everyone. 9/10
