Synopsis

When American military analyst, Daniel Ellsberg, realizes to his disgust the depths of the US government's deceptions about the futility of the Vietnam War, he takes action by copying top-secret documents that would become the Pentagon Papers. Later, Washington Post owner, Kay Graham, is still adjusting to taking over her late husband's business when editor Ben Bradlee discovers the New York Times has scooped them with an explosive expose on those papers. Determined to compete, Post reporters find Ellsberg himself and a complete copy of those papers. However, the Post's plans to publish their findings are put in jeopardy with a Federal restraining order that could get them all indicted for Contempt. Now, Kay Graham must decide whether to back down for the safety of her paper or publish and fight for the Freedom of the Press. In doing so, Graham and her staff join a fight that would have America's democratic ideals in the balance.

"Catastrophic events do occur, you know."

I'd bet dollars to a whole bunch of doughnuts that not many people watching this film today are aware that the history of the Vietnam War precedes the presidency of Richard Nixon by four prior administrations, dating all the way back to Harry Truman. Nixon gets most of the blame of course, for the country's failure in Vietnam, somewhat undeservedly, whereas he does shoulder all of it for the break-in at the Watergate Hotel. Perhaps the title of this picture might better have been 'The Pentagon Papers', with the Washington Post playing it's role, but it was Katherine Graham's newspaper, and as portrayed by Meryl Streep, Graham's stewardship required the requisite amount of diplomacy and resolve. I thought her confrontation with Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) over his relationship with the Kennedys while JFK was in office was quite remarkable, knowing that as President, he did get a pass on all of his extracurricular activities.

What this film probably does best is bring us back to a time in the country when there was such a thing as investigative journalism. Sources were double and triple checked before stories made it into print, while today all it takes sometimes, is a tweet, to send reporters into a frenzy. Personally, when the Pentagon Papers story broke, I was somewhat conflicted and on the fence whether or not a newspaper ought to print stories based on classified government data. In retrospect, the country's national security posture was not harmed, and as an informed public, we're better off knowing what our leaders are up to, especially when decisions to send soldiers into harm's way are concerned.

Recovering Democracy of Expression:Criticising JFK is not a taboo since then!

This film tells us what filmmaking can precisely reflect the social consciousness on the most politically important issue of the nation of today. It is a typical example of realist moviemaking.

Although this film was taken place in Nixon ear during failed Vietnam war in early 1970s, this is for this Trump era. Trump is also dictating and clashing freedom of expression in media and individuals like Shinzo Abe's regime does to its domestic media.

Spielberg is the legendary master of filmmaking and socially responsible to defend the democracy of United States of America in filmmaking. Where is Ang Lee? Could you do this kind of seriously disturbs authorities' film like Mr.Spielberg did? You can't! We know that, KMT.

There are several features of this film, such as JFK was equally criticised as war maker among Nixon and predecessors who engaged covered actions to invade and destabilised other countries like South East Asian countries in this film mentioned. Criticising JFK is not a taboo since then. He was the one who conspired Bay of Pigs invasion by creating fake attack from North Vietnam.

Michael Kahn's construction of a scene in dialogue is unique that it is to carefully hide camera which takes revers cut from opposite position at the end of reverse cutting. It is a typical mark of this scene construction in editing.

This film's importance is that its defended and encouraged the media to have courage to criticise and monitor the government even under the threat from the dictatorship.

Like the tag line said: ''protecting expression of freedom of publishing is to publish.''

The Washington Post CEO and its chief editor did in Nixon's era, that is all of us need today! Japan also needs it! Why no one makes films like this?

Thank you, Mr.Spielberg! You are Mr.Hollywood! Great American artist!

Stunningly Bad Streep Performance

Painfully overacted. Streep made it annoyingly obvious that we were watching an actor. Her signature snootiness and dragged out inflections, pregnant pauses, hitched sentences, glasses fidgetting, head-in-hands dismay, stare-downs, etc etc etc...ugh, ugh, ugh....all contrived. In dusting off all her trademark-isms, she sinks the ship.

Dialogue so dull it can't be resurrected...not even by Hanks.

Even the suspenseful music felt contrived.

A movie trying so hard to be important....thinking it was making a big difference....taking itself so seriously that it was almost humorous.

Can't blame the film technique because ....well...Bob Odenkirk. He overcame all the bad cards he was dealt and rose above the abysmal film emerging as the best performer in the group.

The acting was superb, the plot very interesting, the setting (places, the environment) was also great. I enjoyed every minutes of this movie using boxxy software and I know if I wanna more, I always have content for adults which is also for free.
