Page One: Inside the New York Times Reviews
January 8, 2019
The disjointed doc doesn't deliver on its promise to show us its "unprecedented access" to the newsroom, either.

As the film preened and poked around, something in me kept shouting, "stop press." Or maybe just, "stop."

...a sporadically intriguing yet hopelessly unfocused documentary...

There's something troubling about Page One, but it's difficult to give it a name.
September 22, 2011
A wandering, unfocused approximation of a story in motion.

A documentary should be like a well-designed newspaper front page; instead, "Page One" plays like the Twitter feed of somebody who's following way too many people.

I can (and do) recommend the movie to anyone who wants to know how desperate it feels working for a newspaper in these economically uncertain times. But there's no real strong narrative line here...

Although Rossi hits on a lot of interesting subjects over the course of 90 minutes, he pursues almost none of them to any depth or satisfaction.

Everything about Page One feels dated for a doc and downright ancient in the New Media age Rossi focuses on.
July 3, 2011
By treating the Times as a valuable relic rather than an adaptive organism, Rossi does his subject a disservice.

Page One is entertaining enough, but for a film concerned with the value of news, it offers little that's actually new.

In this documentary, media columnist David Carr practically becomes the face of The New York Times

Page One centers around the Times' media desk, all these big, breaking stories - Iraq, WikiLeaks - come and go, offering drama and distraction, but little in the way of coherence and closure.
June 29, 2011
Reveals little about the media revolution, and nothing about its effects on the Times.
June 27, 2011
It ignores the many other things the paper does well, such as foreign, financial, and national-affairs reporting, and Rossi misses the underbrush, the secret life and murmured music of the place.

Watching "Page One: Inside the New York Times" is like talking to a smart person with a severe case of attention deficit disorder: A lot of what they say is intriguing, but you wish they could stick to the point.

Page One isn't quite a NYT cover story, but its moments of intrigue and hilarious Dave Carr sequences are entertaining.
June 17, 2011
Basically a carefully airbrushed and authorized portrait of the Gray Lady during 14 months when there was serious speculation about the paper's impending demise.

It flits from topic to topic, character to character, explaining almost nothing.
