两年前奥斯卡获奖影片聚焦,让我作为一个记者而自豪,华盛顿邮报上周看完,让我觉得这一事件是多么的有意思,或者至少某一刻,确定这个时间有它的历史语境。

有时候演员胜过一切,一个城市的房间是所有演员的聚集地,将他们聚集在电影中,最有效的方式,由导演斯皮尔伯格呈现在这里,将你最喜欢的演员聚集在一起,斯特里普最大限度的演绎,精湛的演技饰演了kay,以至于你没有想到过,这全是人为的。你目视着他在银幕前的所作所为,并想替她在董事会上说no。如同其他在电影中不管有怎样处境的的每一个角色,他们都是由一些我们在其他电影看到的人饰演,并且我们很乐意再看到他们一次。

我忘记我曾经在什么地方看的电影。但我确信的是每一个看电影人都很快乐。聚焦讲述了一个棘手的针对教父犯罪行为的调查,此调查由波士顿环球报为经济好转的手段而着手,最开始刊登在美国的报纸上。我们知道华盛顿邮报发表五角大楼的报告,丝毫没有伤害任何人,当我走出电影中的冒险的时候,我笑容满面。斯皮尔伯格,用一个完美的笑话,包装了这一部电影。1976年的电影,所有的总统先生的第一个镜头,成为了华盛顿邮报的最后一个镜头一个警卫发现有人闯入水门。这部电影充满着自命不凡的语调,告诉我们这部电影只不过是另外一个更加有趣事件的前传。这就如同克里斯多夫诺兰的系列电影的帷幕,使得蝙蝠侠连续故事远没有完成。

华盛顿邮报,就如同总统先生和聚焦一样,达到了特定的结尾。出版了划时代的一系列新闻。最终结局光明,出版在继续,大量的报纸充满着无所畏惧的新闻,并且用卡车运往街边的小商贩。过去也曾这样表现。每一个新出版的新闻就是一个事件。在水门事件期间在星期天时报工作,看到电报非常兴奋,因为这就是泰晤士报和新闻周报宣布他们的新的社论的前夜。每家报纸必然发布的水门事件的报告,将推动事件缓慢向前。

现在,我从走廊拿到的纽约时报发布的重大的调查报告,这些报告有时候昨天已经发布在网络,我前一晚在Rachel Maddow那里听到他们讨论,大部分通过Chris Haye等等,更不用说通过他们的专门小组。没有什么新鲜出版的东西,新闻持续的发布着无用的反应,分析和含混不清的事件。很少有让人在出版前夜屏住呼吸的专家权威新闻,虽然它已经完成。总统的twitter拥有巨大的促进作用。

华盛顿邮报让人兴奋,是因为每一个在荧幕前的人,拥有着这样一个预设前提,华盛顿邮报拥有一则新闻想要告诉世界,且通过他们的耳朵改变世界。有时候我在家看电视,我不能确信哪些新闻不再报道。甚至不能确定它发生与否。有时候,我获得的新闻充满着杂音,以至于我想扔掉它。

Spotlight, the Oscar-winning movie of two years ago, made me feel proud to be a journalist.The Post, which I finally saw over the weekend, reminded me how much fun the business is. Or at least was once upon a time. I'm pretty sure it still has its moments. Sometimes casting is everything. A city room is a collection of characters, and the most efficient way to put that across in a movie is the way director Steven Spielberg chose here: bring together a bunch of your favorite character actors and let them have at it—the degree of permissible overacting set by Meryl Streep, who as Kay Graham turns in the kind of bravura performance that you never for a minute forget is all technique. (You watch her do a scene and want to hold up a board that says "10.") Just about every role in the movie of any consequence is played by someone we know from somewhere else and are delighted to see again. Like Matthew Rhys fromThe Americans, and Bob Odenkirk and Jesse Plemons fromBreaking Bad, and Tracy Letts fromHomelandandLady Bird, and his wife, Carrie Coon, fromFargo. And Michael Stuhlbarg, who's in everything these days but I remember chiefly fromBoardwalk Empire. I don't remember watching a movie where I was more certain that everyone in it was having a wonderful time. Spotlighttold the story of a gritty investigation into the deviant behavior of priests that was undertaken by theBoston Globeas the financial sun was beginning to set on American newspapers. We all know that publishing the Pentagon Papers did theWashington Postno harm whatsoever, and I walked out of the movie about that adventure with a big grin on my face. Spielberg wraps up the show with a wonderful joke. Thefirst sceneofAll the President's Men(1976) becomes thelast sceneofThe Post—a guard discovering the 1972 break-in at the Watergate. The soundtrack swells with portentous chords that tell us the story we've just watched is but a prequel to another that's even niftier—like a stirring Christopher Nolan curtain that makes it clear the Batman saga is far from done. The Post, likeAll the President’s Men, and likeSpotlight, is about reaching a specific end—the publishing of a series of epochal news stories. Finally an OK is given, presses rumble, and bundles of newspapers brimming with dreadnought news are tossed off trucks to vendors on street corners. That's how it used to be. Every newly published story was an event. During Watergate, I worked Sunday nights at theSun-Times, and it was exciting to watch the wires because that was the night whenTimeandNewsweekannounced their new editions, each with its inevitable Watergate report sure to move the ball another few yards down the field. Today, the big investigative story in the issue of theNew York TimesI retrieve from my porch and hold in my hand is something that was released online sometime yesterday and I heard discussed last night by Rachel Maddow—and probably by Chris Matthews, Chris Hayes, Lawrence O'Donnell, and Brian Williams too, not to mention their guest panelists. Nothing is ever actually published anymore; news oozes out into an unceasing slurry of reaction, analysis, and babble. There's far too little news to fill a breathless evening of cable news punditry, but nevertheless it is filled. The president's tweets help immeasurably. The Postwas exciting because everyone onscreen and in the audience embraced the premise that thePosthad news to tell that would turn the world on its ear. Sometimes at home watching TV I'm not sure what news is any longer. I'm not sure it even exists. Sometimes I get so stuffed with hubbub that isn't news that I want to throw up.
