Critic Reviews for Obit
"Obit" manages to be both about a specific type of journalism and the larger world it reflects while dropping in all manner of colorful lives and circumstances.
The real subject here is storytelling, the creation of a stylish, authoritative, highly personal record of "how the world got to be the way it is." One more thing to miss about newspapers when they go.
As someone who takes great pleasure in both reading and writing valedictions to the recently deceased, I can personally attest that the movie's dead on.
It is fascinating to watch the writers in "Obit" strive to do right by their subjects, warts and all.
These folks are neither dour nor sappy; they are just talented journalists who want to do right by the people who left their mark on the world.
