Trevor Tillman's rating of the film The Post

A perfect cap to Spielberg's "Civics Trilogy" that started with Lincoln and Bridge of Spies. One of the few depictions of female pragmatism in 2017 that doesn't come off as patronizing or self-congratulatory. The oners and the use of giant movie stars talking to each other as a spectacle unto itself shows a Spielberg who's as energetic as ever, and I'd be happy if he stuck to drama for the remainder of his career.
