The Post ★★½

Oscar fishy’s got caught on this bait.

As much as it pains me to say “Oscar bait” I can’t help feeling this is exactly what it is, it felt very messy.

I feel it wasn’t sure which direction it was going in, and im honestly surprised it’s nommed for best picture but let’s face it, hanks, Streep and Spielberg like of course it’s going to be.

Despite some great sequences it just felt emotionless and I felt distanced because of it, the biggest mistake I think was not having Michael stuhlbarg playing a leading role.
