January films (3)

January 27, 2018

I was in a screening of The Post. The average age in the room must’ve been higher than 50… probably the people who were alive when all of this happened.

This film has gotten some good reviews but it didn’t really do it for me. I didn’t connect with the film at all. There was good imagery and a great performance from Meryl Streep but ultimately it all felt a little flat and overproduced. (★1/2.)

Edit: in Kermode’s podcast, they mentioned the “Spielberg light”; this must’ve been the bloomy cinematic effect that bothered me.
