Alright time for another real story that was nominated for Oscars that is now on Netflix. This one will surely be more serious than the other one though given the content. I like Thomas McCarthy's films. He did Up, The Cobbler, and Million Dollar Arm. I haven't seen any of Josh Singer's films yet though. I also really like the cast here. A newspaper suing the Catholic Church has to be a very inten... read more

Spotlight, based upon the Boston Globe’s 2002 expose on sex abuse within the Catholic Church, is a film that takes a familiar story, but pulls back the curtain to reveal the blood, sweat, and groundwork it took to uncover it all. It presents Boston not as a sprawling city, but as a small-town mindset, heavily under control of the church and prone to closing ranks to protect its own. It would sou... read more

It tells of how the Boston Globe's "Spotlight Team" reporters spent a year interviewing victims and reviewing thousands of pages of documents and discovered years of cover-ups by Church leadership. Their reporting eventually led to the resignation of Cardinal Bernard Law, who had hidden years of serial abuse by other priests, and opened the floodgates to revelations of molestation and cover-ups worldwide that still reverberate today.

" So Spotlight is pretty powerful stuff. Not only because of the source material and what it's all about, but because the film has been made in such a way that the emotional destruction that lies underneath the investigation and all the scandals is given a way to rise in front and center. Thus Spotlight becomes a very involving film and by the end of it, you're left just as exhausted as the characters in the film. Spotlight is just an outstanding drama.
