Reviews:
4 stars out of 5 -- "On its own considerable merits, THE POST is first class." - 12/07/2017 Empire


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t's one of best and tick-tock timeliest movies of the year....Steven Spielberg's tense, terrific new drama celebrates the passionate bond between a free press and every thinking human being..." - 12/14/2017 Rolling Stone


"THE POST, director Steven Spielberg’s gripping and taut tackling of the Pentagon Papers scandal, takes place in 1971 but happens to be the most politically timely high-profile Hollywood tale of 2017." - 12/06/2017 USA Today


3 stars out of 4 -- "[W]ell-constructed and packed with talented performers....There’s more than enough to like here, including a great ensemble, the best performance from a living legend in years, and, again, a message that feels depressingly timely." - 12/19/2017 RogerEbert.com


"THE POST goes against the contemporary Hollywood grain. Propulsive major studio cinema made with a real-world purpose in mind, it's a risky venture that succeeds across the board." - 12/21/2017 Los Angeles Times


"The Pentagon Papers give THE POST its heft and pulse; the antagonism between the government and the media gives it a shiver of topicality." - 12/21/2017 New York Times


"This is a love letter to journalistic bravery and to the First Amendment, and it is the best movie about newspapers since ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN." - 01/03/2018 Chicago Sun-Times
