    Finally just saw the film on HBO. What a fantastic movie and a great ending. It goes to show you how much a film genius Spielberg can be. From the script to filming and post-production of editing I only lasted 2 weeks. It took only 9 months start to finish for this film get out. Just like the classic 'All the President's Men' this film shows how important that a journalist or the newspaper media is. No matter if you find mistakes and say they didn't have this in 1971 or this didn't happened... This was really a great film. 👍

    It was an excellent film. Streep captured Graham beautifully. The most moving scene of the film was Graham walking down the steps of the Supreme Court and all the women looking up at her with respect and admiration.

    it looked as if the character was qualified. THAT is the important thing now days. You don't have a female in a position just because she is female. We need qualified females in high positions

    I thought the movie was riveting. I was in High School then, born in DC--now I see it thought different eyes. I must see it again. And I was my daughter and granddaughter to see it too--they'll understand me better, still conflicted about the tension between career and family.

    I saw it on Sunday and I will say this. I am a HUGE fan of all the president's men. I think this film was a perfect sequel or prequel to it for several reasons. First, the sweeping scenes of the news room photographed at about waist height were almost identical to those in all the president's men. Second, Tom Hanks captured Ben Bradlee so well, as did Jason Robards. I saw a lot of similarity between the two performances. Third was the drama of a newspaper at the brink, to publish or not? Obviously there were a lot of differences between the two films but I think together they tell a much broader and more complete story.

    Anything to suggest that they have ever been questioned on this:
    "Although it probably did not cross Ellsberg's mind when he released the Pentagon Papers to The New York Times, he succeeded in doing what the Agency, on its own, has rarely been able to do for more than twenty years: he made the CIA 'look good' through what inhabitants of the Pickle Factory themselves would call a 'highly credible source'."

    This movie was really good and demonstrates brilliantly why we need a free press to hold corrupt Governments like Nixon's and Trump's accountable.

      A free press that chooses side's politically, is not a free press.

      That was exactly what the Supreme Court decided in that case. That they were upholding the Founding Fathers' intent that the press must be allowed the freedom to publish in order to expose corruption in government, should it exist.

    The movie did a great job showing that collusion between the Democratic Party and the media that serves them did not start with the Clinton's.

      won't be seeing it - PPs are a verifiably confirmed limited hangout - Ellsberg was (is?) either a rich asset or a useful tool - e.g., ratical.org/ratville/JFK/ST/STchp8.html
      "Although it probably did not cross Ellsberg's mind when he released the Pentagon Papers to The New York Times, he succeeded in doing what the Agency, on its own, has rarely been able to do for more than twenty years: he made the CIA 'look good' through what inhabitants of the Pickle Factory themselves would call a 'highly credible source'."

    I was desapointed... Meryl Streep character was weak and Tom Hanks never grew up on me.im sorry......

      Weak? She stood up to all those men who told her to do the opposite and put everything - her entire life and her family's future on the line - to take a tremendous risk. How is that weak? If she seemed to have doubts, well that must have been who she was. Not a demanding powerhouse, but a real person with doubts. People who worked at The Post at the time were interviewed and said that she captured her perfectly.

    of course these people would NOT criticize the movie ...it portrays them in the way they want to be seen....just ANOTHER jewish produced movie for the good of mankind.

      Well, it's been praised elsewhere (look at the glowing reviews for it from HUNDREDS of RIVAL publications right on RottenTomatoes).
      Of course Trump voters are going to bitch about this movie. Their President taught them to shout "Fake News!" like brainless monkies.

    • girlzeyeview
      girlzeyeview Year ago +3

      Jonathan Rawlings For now, we do. But if Trump has his way, that freedom of the press will end. He has been looking into any ways he can curtail the press' freedoms. He has directly stated that. Short of that, he keeps repeating "fake news" so much that lots of people believe it. Look how many people these days shout it whenever the news reports a story. The "fake news" mantra is to wear down any support the free press may have if it ever came to legal blows as it did during the Pentagon Papers.

      +Jonathan Rawlings You're right, you do have the right to your opinion. What you don't have a right to is immunity from criticism. Others have the right to point out just how irredeemably stupid and bigoted your views are. Finally, the First Amendment does not exist to shield you from criticism or ensconce the sanctity of your opinion. It exists only to prevent the government from interfering with your speech. Since the people replying in your thread, pointing out just how moronic and anti-Semitic you are, are doing so as private individuals and not members of the government, we are in no way violating your Constitutional right to free speech. Good day.

      docs real, but not honest - many deep-state analyses call them a "limited hangout" to protect the CIA from accountability mainly for Operation Phoenix - broad village-level Vietnam assassination terror campaign - Ellsberg was a useful tool, probably unwitting, but that's unsettled - ronaldthomaswest.com/2016/08/05/pentagon-papers-cia-and-the-lies-of-daniel-ellsberg/

    JFK issued Ex Order #263, in Oct 63, which stopped the Vietnam war. Period.
    I had orders to Vietnam in Aug 63, & JFK saved my life by stopping the Vietnam war.
    JFK made a deal with the Russians to ask Cuba to give back the SAM's,
    they were using to shoot down US U-2's,
    if the US will take its dozen ICBM's out of Turkey, surrounding the Soviet Union.
    Watergate was a cover up of the JFK assassination.
    Both GHW Bush & Nixon were in Dallas 11-22-63, along with Howard Hunt, Frank Sturgis
    & Manual Artime, all part of the Bay of Pigs.
    The US media worked hard to avoid connecting the dots, from Cuba to Vietnam, to Dallas to Watergate.
    Yes, you & 4 friends can actually stop global warming.
    Here is the first step: lobby your school board to put 500 solar panel on your local school.
    Then lobby your PUC to requires Utilities to pay $0.49 kwh for surplus solar sold onto the grid.
    If all new construction , in the burned areas of Napa, LA, Sonoma, Lake, etc. were required to be 100% solar homes,
    like Lancaster, Ca requires, the homes would be safer from the next fire.
    A roof, covered with glass solar panels,
    is less likely to catch on fire from flying embers.
    All new construction in California should be 100% solar powered.
    Mass Movement.
    Germany shut all Nukes by building 4-plex homes w
    100 solar panels. We can shut all Nukes
    if U build 4-plex solar home
    We can rebuilt California into a solar economy , using decentralization,
    by each building 4-plex solar homes, with 100 panels.
    Likewise, we can rebuild Puerto Rico as a solar economy if we
    do like Hector Santiago did.
    Hector built a solar home with 244 panels on his home
    and barns.
