last night i saw “Spotlight”

Spotlight the Movie

i was underwhelmed.

it had gotten some good reviews. there were a few good performances.

mark ruffalo was fantastic.

the dude from Mad Men made me miss Mad Men.

other than that there werent that many surprises because we all know what happened.

i didnt think it was shot with much artistry.

i may be its only current critic as it’s getting a whopping 98% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes

id give it a b- or c+

but the one really good thing about it is it shows how important long form investigative journalism is.

newspapers continue to struggle, so i would be interested to see if television news rooms will pick up the slack and start delivering the type of scoops that newspapers have given us over the years.

i hope so
