I SAW SPOTLIGHT FOR THE SECOND TIME TODAY

  1. If you haven't seen it, please do.
  2. It's going to win best picture.
  3. And I don't say that lightly.
  4. As someone from Massachusetts, I was extremely pleased by how right they got it.
  5. The accents varied based on socioeconomics. This is how it actually is there. Movies don't always get that.
  6. Every shot of the city was perfect.
  7. The Catholic Church OWNS Boston.
  8. Also, I realized today that this film dramatized a true story in a way that felt more honest than most other films of its kind.
  9. There was no love story added in.
  10. No unnecessary action scenes.
  11. Just hard-hitting reporting.
  12. My favorite performances: Mark Ruffalo, Stanley Tucci, Michael Keaton
  13. Such a simple movie, and yet, so effective.
