May 16, 2004
Além de errar ao não condenar os absurdos cometidos pela repórter vivida por Field, o filme inclui um romance forçado e implausível. Definitivamente, não envelheceu bem.
| Original Score: 2/5

The picture has a smug, demoralizing sense of pervasive corruption.

Impeccably liberal in its orientation to 'issues,' his avoids the excesses of Stanley Kramer-like telegraphy, only to come up looking aesthetically wet.

I not only liked this movie despite its factual and ethical problems -- I'm not even so sure they matter so much to most viewers.

The ultimate conclusion of the film will leave you thoughtful and even perhaps a touch sad -- rare for any film, and even more rare for a thriller.

Sally Field and Paul Newman deliver some great work in this look at journalistic warfare.

A splendidly disturbing look at the power of sloppy reporting to inflict harm on the innocent.

Another bash the media film, but 15 years before its time.

Absence of Malice does not invalidate All the President's Men. But with entertainment values -- and a moral sense -- every bit as high as that film's, it observes that there is an underside to journalistic gallantry.

What Mr. Pollack's movies lack in momentum, they make up for in quiet gravity.

Despite good intentions, this uneven drama might disturb women as the journalist played by Sally Field is not only irresponsible but also not very bright; Paul Newman compensates with a strong turn.
