A fascinating study of a newspaper doing its best to not just survive but to continue to do so with excellence while the world tilts beneath the venerable broadsheet.
Even if the movie fails to truly capture the inner workings of a newspaper and the amount of work required to print an issue every day, it's still a highly entertaining snapshot of a culture in the midst of a rapid transformation...

A consistently engaging documentary that's paced like a thriller and spiced up by a few colourful characters worthy of fiction.

Morris, whose previous work includes the remarkable The Thin Blue Line and The Fog of War, does not hesitate to provoke.
