The Post

The  new movie  by Steven Spielberg about Katherine Graham’s role in publishing the Pentagon Papers. I  was surprised at how much I liked it.

Spielberg’s movies have also annoyed me a little.  They are all  good, and I always enjoy them. He has a nice formula,  which I mean as both a compliment and  a fault. He knows the steps to take  to put together an entertaining movie but it often feels a bit too much a paint by numbers. I  also feel like  he’ s talking  down to me too.

Meryl Streep is fantastic. I  always been a little  skeptical about her “greatness”, but I take it all back. She’s perfect in this one.
