    An important story told very poorly. The direction is sub-par and the script is boring and self-important. Being timely doesn't mean you don't need characterization, narrative or dramatic tension. Meh. 2 years 5 months ago

    I have to say I find The Post just a tad overrated. If you haven't seen it, it is the Oscar baity drama you would expect, but a very well-directed, well-shot, and well-acted one.

    When it works, it is absolutely riveting. I'll find myself glued to the screen when the characters encounter a particular conflict.

    But when it doesn't work, it's a bit of a slog. Particularly when sometimes writers Josh Singer and Liz Hannah feel the need for characters to explain what's going on in monologues and overlong conversations.

    Back on the positive note, I found the ending EXTREMELY satisfying, and so did the theater in a nice round of applause.
