Journalists around us a somewhat deluded epic film that we love to remember in times of discouragement. New Moon (1940) and The Front Page (1974) remind us, even now, how bright and cynics (kindhearted) we can become. All the President's Men tells us about the meaning of all this. Much of what we do not unmask presidents, no; but if he is honest and does the job, with that it is enough for us. Although, evoking films to boost the morale, nothing like the fourth power (1952), Richard Brooks. Especially when the rotary is put to work: the roar of truth. Well, that sound of printed paper machines and also resonates in the Spotlight effective. But when it comes we are not so innocent: we have a broader and less heroic vision of journalism.
In that sense, Spotlight, Tom McCarthy of which already talked about the same in the series The Wire- is superior to all the above films. A work to the glory of daily work.

We are facing a proposal details resulting from a tremendous effectiveness. Nor we find any deep throat or secret dossiers. Only traces of a conspiracy involving many, and some journalists tired, played with conviction.
Although more than priests and journalists, speaks Spotlight something that corrodes the truth from within: the blind spots; the camel in the middle of the room that nobody sees, not even veteran journalists. The truth is out there, it is true, and Spotlight reminds us what it takes to conquer. And who, in the end, takes care of it ...
