It wouldn't be Spielberg without romanticism to the highest degree, and he'd probably plead guilty.

The Post was exciting because everyone onscreen and in the audience embraced the premise that the Post had news to tell that would turn the world on its ear. Sometimes at home watching TV I'm not sure what news is any longer.

The film wrings a fair amount of tension and nostalgia from what is essentially a string of meetings in smoky rooms, though it stints on analysis and ends with a limp punchline.

The tensions wind up deliciously as we work our way to a penultimate celebration of a now-imperilled medium.

The film-making may hardly be groundbreaking, but this story is more relevant than ever, and it is told with wit, precision and understated passion.

This is Streep's movie, and not because she is typically excellent. She owns it because Graham is the only character on a journey of self-discovery.

... turns some sobering and timely questions about press power and presidential abuses into eminently satisfying screen entertainment.

It's a bit of a Trojan horse, as it cleverly smuggles in another film; a film about a woman coming into her own, which has to be satisfying. And is.

A film about rushing to meet a deadline that feels like it was made that way.

The Post manages the feat of being nostalgic and topical.

Streep, Hanks and Spielberg deliver quality news in this journalistic thriller that's out to be this year's Spotlight.

This is a powerful if sometimes heavy-handed film. It seems particularly significant right now, when there's an orange buffoon tweeting about awarding "worst news" awards as a propaganda tool to stifle criticism.

The conversations that centre on this point are at the heart of the film, which is timely, timeless and utterly enthralling.

Streep is superb. What else is new?

It's to Spielberg's credit that he wanted to tell this story, and that he and his formidable cast tell it so very well.

It may be set in the past, but The Post is a timely and urgent tale for the present.

The people deserve the truth and not to be lied to, but "The Post" shows that is easier said than done, and it's harder than just writing a story and sending it to the presses.

In an era in which journalistic outlets are increasingly accused of delivering "fake news," this film is a reminder that few things are as precious - and vital - as the truth.
