“The benefit of being Steven Spielberg is that when you’re at the top of your game and you amass a group of collaborators who are all at the top of their game, you’re going to come out with a strong film through sheer force of talent,” begins the review by Collider.
“It’s a movie set in 1971 that’s very much about 2017, and Spielberg eloquently speaks to our current moment even if sometimes the words are incredibly on the nose.”
The overall score is a B+
“The Post is a movie that is IMPORTANT, but it never feels self-satisfied or smug thanks to the talent of everyone involved. We all know why the people making this movie are doing it, and that the press for it will certainly revolve around current events. But what makes The Post more than topical is that Spielberg never loses sight of telling the best story. Yes, The Post speaks to the moment, but it’s through Spielberg’s voice that it speaks clearly and forcefully.”
