  • Mostly, though, this is a solid tribute to one of the most commanding forces an old-school newsroom has ever seen.

  • Chronicling its subject's life and career in fascinating detail, The Newspaperman: The Life and Times of Ben Bradlee will prove catnip to journalism and political buffs, not to mention anyone who cares about the free press and its role in our democracy.

  • What's not so expected, what comes as something bordering on shock, of a gratifying kind, is how much else the film takes on in this buoyant and mercilessly frank look at Bradlee's life and career.

  • Fortunately, though they may not be titanic, there are real journalists still fighting the good fight in the business, in TV, social and digital media, and in newspapers. All of them to one extent or another embody the legacy of Ben Bradlee.
