        Horrifying subject. Worse because it's a true story. Good acting. Well made.

        Whilst unevenly paced at times, Spotlight is a haunting film that dives deep into the horrors of the subject matter which it deals with.

        You may already know the story, but thanks to a great cast this is still a great watch and continues the long time love affair between cinema and journalism.

        Perfectly executed praise of the power of the press. A stellar cast and flawless direction make for an engaging and highly entertaining result. It doesn't even take major shockers to make this such a satisfying and smart movie. It requires some concentration but is ultimately even more rewarding for it.
