San Diego ReaderJanuary 12, 2018
Streep is superb. What else is new?
Detroit NewsJanuary 12, 2018
The people deserve the truth and not to be lied to, but "The Post" shows that is easier said than done, and it's harder than just writing a story and sending it to the presses.
St. Louis Post-DispatchJanuary 11, 2018
In an era in which journalistic outlets are increasingly accused of delivering "fake news," this film is a reminder that few things are as precious - and vital - as the truth.
Houston ChronicleJanuary 11, 2018
While physical newspapers may not be as much a part of American life as they used to be, the occasional films about their publication - such as "Zodiac," "State of Play," and "Spotlight" - continue to enthrall. Now, "The Post" can be added to the list.
Globe and MailJanuary 05, 2018
Spielberg offers a tight, lucid and highly satisfying account of the Pentagon Papers from the point of view of the Post and its publisher, Kay Graham.
Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 04, 2018
The standout is Bob Odenkirk as Ben Bagdikian, the kind of old-school reporter who wears out the soles of his shoes tracking down a scoop.

This is a powerful if sometimes heavy-handed film. It seems particularly significant right now, when there's an orange buffoon tweeting about awarding "worst news" awards as a propaganda tool to stifle criticism.
The Daily Review/CrikeyJanuary 13, 2018
The balance doesn't sit right and the most exciting elements of The Post remain off-screen. The film has measured surface and technical values, though there is little flair in Janusz Kaminski's cinematography and its texture feels cold and clinical.
Hindustan TimesJanuary 12, 2018
An evenhanded snapshot of the fractious relationship between a deceitful government and committed journalists, The Post is essential viewing.
Sydney Morning HeraldJanuary 12, 2018
The conversations that centre on this point are at the heart of the film, which is timely, timeless and utterly enthralling.
ScreenRantJanuary 12, 2018
The Post is an expertly-crafted and compelling film brought to tantalizing life by a master director and an all-star ensemble cast.
The Times of IndiaJanuary 12, 2018
The Post goes beyond chastising clickbaity media sensationalism and serves as a stark reminder of the purpose of the press in any democracy.
