Three sentence movie reviews: Spotlight
This movie has vaulted to the top of my Incredible-You-Must-See-It movie list* as it contains a story that won’t stop–but never goes overboard–and incredible acting and also LIBRARIANS!** I found the story to be upsetting in that way that means it happened in real life, and no one did anything.*** The “upsetting” means a bunch of people aren’t going to see it, but that’s a shame because this is the kind of movie that won’t leave you in the best way possible.
Cost: free due to birthday gift card from brother
Where watched: Regal Fox Tower
*You know this list lives in my head, right? It doesn’t really exist in written form.
**The librarians aren’t really part of the plot, but it’s really cool to see pre-digital newspaper research. It almost makes up for the sad feeling one gets when one thinks of what was to come for the newspapers.
***I mean really, the levels of complacency in this film are gasp-inducing.
