Episode 67 – Spotlight

SpotlightAs has become an annual tradition, we are watching this year’s Best Picture Oscar winner.  For 2016, most people assumed the award would go to Revenant.  However, Oscar voters surprised everyone by selecting Spotlight instead.  The film is representative of a dying genre as newspaper journalism is a dying medium.  Fine performances anchor this movie that is disturbing not so much because of how the story is told but because so much of the story is true.

Our next film will be All the President’s Men!
