'Page One: Inside the New York Times' is sanguine about change. It describes it, captures it, but doesn't lament it.
Page One is always about at least six subjects at once, firing like a scatter-gun and only occasionally hitting its targets.
Worth watching even if it fails to deal with the paper's troubled relationship to the power elite that effectively makes it our Pravda.
...a sporadically intriguing yet hopelessly unfocused documentary...
Audience Reviews for Page One: Inside the New York Times
David Carr needs his own movie
I kind of saw this as a one-stop-shop advertisement to subscribe to the NYT paywall rather than any substantial docudrama. I learned more about what it was like to work for the Times in that fashion documentary, Bill Cunningham New York, than in this one. The movie's only saving grace (and it was a big one) is David Carr. He's the greatest.
Interesting behind-the-scenes moments over the past 12 months, scattered throughout the movie, help to demonstrate the included arguments from the New York Times (and other legacy news media) for its necessity to exist in this new age of blogs and twitter. It's effective, but the movie could have been more efficient... it meanders.
