The Post at the Pacific Place

The weirdest movie month of the year, the time when studios both expand their biggest award-hopefuls and dump their trashiest genre fare, begins this week with the latest from Steven Spielberg, playing exclusively at the Pacific Place. It’s the story of the second newspaper to publish excerpts from Daniel Ellsberg’s Pentagon Papers, the classified history of US involvement in Vietnam, and of the internal conflicts between the Washington Post’s publisher, Meryl Streep’s Katharine Graham and its editor, Tom Hanks. This is the kind of sturdy liberal procedural Spielberg has excelled at in recent years, and while it doesn’t hit the heights of Lincoln and is vastly more self-important than Bridge of Spies, it does work as a stealth reunion of Mr. Show. I reviewed it back in December.
