    Spotlight

    ★★★★½

    Remembered loving this movie back in 2015 until it won Best Picture. I was on The Revenant wave then, it was clearly the motion picture achievement of the year at the time (still love that movie but it’s clear that films such as Sicario, Steve Jobs, and The Hateful Eight were snubbed.

Let’s get the only positive…

Spencer’s magical realism was supposed to be a portal into Princess Diana’s psyche, instead it applies fog to the central plot and makes it a story of her losing her marbles (in a way, quite literally) when the strongest parts of the film were her playing with her young sons at the time, Prince William and Prince Harry.
