Saw "Spotlight" Today
Some thoughts/comments on this exceptional new movie. **If you don't like to read reviews etc before seeing a movie don't read this list.
- •Hard core journalism.If you ever thought about or are trying to become a news reporter. See this movie.
- •There were no "fake" Boston accents!Those are always so terrible. See the movies "The Departed" and "Good Will Hunting"
- •Michael KeatonBecame Walter Robby Robinson. I never thought he was anything but this guy trying to do what is best.
- •Liev Schreiber's performance is great. Small, yet critical.But his heavy beard kept reminding me about his role in X-men Origins: Wolverine.
- •Impressed with how they kept the movie true to "2001".Flip phones, big ( not flat) computer monitors. Old school notebooks and pens. No Facebook or other social media.
- •9/11Was given a proper mention with out taking away from the subject of the movie.
- •VictimsThe subject is obviously very sensitive and it was handled very well overall.
- •As someone who group in the Catholic ChurchI found this harder to watch than expected. I think because it simply happened so easily.
- •I wonder...What our current Pope will think if he watches this movie.
