SPOTLIGHT derives its power from the steady accumulation of moments that gain momentum and meaning as they accrue. For all its modesty and dedication, SPOTLIGHT winds up being a startlingly emotional experience.
SPOTLIGHT is a gripping detective story and a superlative newsroom drama, a solid procedural that tries to confront evil without sensationalism. The film focuses on both the human particulars and the larger political contours of the scandal and its uncovering. Everything in this film works.
