smndvdcl's rating of the film The Post

Criminally ignores the role of whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg whilst aggrandising an Establishment newspaper that Jeff Bezos has essentially bought out. Credit where it is due: like most neoliberal films, it has some points on identity politics (role of women in elite positions), the role of the free press (but not for Assange or WikiLeaks) etc, but implicitly fails to see how similar Bush/Obama are to Trump.
