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

Enjoyable as it is, The Post may not meet the measure of success that Spielberg probably wants...

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

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?

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.

The roll-up-the-sleeves-and-dig-in attitude is a joy to watch; the multitude of self-righteous monologues are anything but.

It's a great watch.
