'Spotlight' on What Journalism Really Means

'Spotlight" details how Boston Globe investigative reporters exposed the Catholic Church's system of covering up sex abuse.
Back from the film Spotlight with Bart​, the story of how, in 2001, a Boston Globe investigative team turned Cardinal Law into Cardinal Not-the-Law. It’s a realistic anthem to American journalism, flags flying with full trumpet fanfare.
Maybe also a swan song for journalism, but one that will remain a reminder of what professional journalism is supposed to be and do, and why a society must necessarily fall prey to great evil without it.
Yesterday, Bart and I went to Carol, based on Patricia Highsmith’s novel The Price of Salt. The movie evoked 1950s New York with the care of an oil painting, portraying the delicacy of seduction and the bittersweet beauty of love.
