  • Has the passionate, thunderous, and occasionally weepy tone of a good barroom eulogy.

  • It's a wonderful documentary, full of colourful stories and sharp commentary. It paints a vivid picture of newsrooms filled with vibrant characters and, mainly, it celebrates great writing.

  • Breslin and Hamill may preach too long, but its copious valentines are appropriately strewn with little heartbreaks.

  • The heart of the film resides in capturing what increasingly feels like a bygone era, when vibrant newspapers -- and the "big personalities with big opinions" they employed -- were powerfully connected to their communities.

  • Comes with a heavenly supply of gossip, a treasury of revered observations on life -- mainly wisecracks -- and a delectably detailed view of the larger world of print journalism in which its subjects thrived.
