- Oscar Hangover Special: Why "Spotlight" Is a Terrible Film
Resource Type: Article
I am astonished (though I suppose I shouldn't be) that, across the past few months, ever since Spotlight hit theatres, otherwise serious left-of-centre people have peppered their party conversation with effusions that the film reflects a heroic journalism, the kind we all need more of. I was in Boston in the Spring of 2002 reporting on the priest scandal, and because I know some of what is untrue, I don't believe the personal injury lawyers or the Boston Globe's "Spotlight" team or the Catholic "faithful" who became harpies outside Boston churches, carrying signs with images of Satan.
