The subject calls for Sam Fuller’s tabloid profundity, or, keeping with the drone-tone approach, David Fincher’s scalpel-like acuity. Cowriter-director Tom McCarthy is content to do a Xerox gloss on the newsroom scenes from The Wire, in which he himself featured as a corrupt reporter. It’s all very easygoing, competent, and pleasurable. But—given this subject matter, especially—should it be?

That there’s no particularly “deep” meaning here is besides the point. Striking a difficult tonal balance between satire and Greek tragedy, Côté manages to communicate the kind of deep torment that comes from looking inward at a shallow life.

Directed by Tom McCarthy (The Station Agent, The Cobbler) and written by McCarthy and Josh Singer (writer and showrunner for the loopy television series Fringe and Lie to Me), the fact-checked film is a cleanly edited dispatch from the journalistic frontlines with no flowery phrases or bloated verbiage… A true crime story with no forensic lab work or yellow-taped crime scenes, no narrative tension or moral ambiguity, the film exudes slow-burn dread but no spine-tingling suspense.

  • chanandre's rating of the film Spotlight

    Steady, nuanced, grown-up, serious filmmaking. One of the quietest, most subtle & delicate film scores I heard in quite some time (reminds me of early Shore-Cronenberg OST).Heavy topic handled with sober hands: Eastwood-y. Altman-y ensemble spreading understated & stellarly controlled performances.Tucci, Crudup & Slattery are amazing but the square Schreiber-McAdams-Keaton-Ruffalo steals it all (Schreiber's voice<3).

  • T. J. Mesen's rating of the film Spotlight

    Paper, words, offices, and medium shots that bring nothing interesting to the table. It's a procedural, it tells a story. The characters lack personalities, merely delivering the words of the investigative process. Their outbursts of emotion placed to bring some excitement to the frame. It's an important topic that merited the investigation, but that on its own doesn't make a great film. "Ah, mediocre!" –Immortan Joe

  • Rafael Zen's rating of the film Spotlight

    When this normcore blockbuster Law and Order extended episode is considered the "best film of the year in american cinema industry" we know that industry is lacking cinema: this is just a OK investigation film to watch with coke-and-popcorn: it lacks several human aspects - dept, emotion, fire: it lacks breathtaking.

  • Dave's rating of the film Spotlight

    Very good in every respect - script, direction, performances, the whole package. Nothing revelatory or particularly innovative in the filmmaking or the storytelling, but the material is so provocative that it's impossible to not react as the investigation unfolds. Very good, though certainly not the best picture of 2015.

  • josé neves's rating of the film Spotlight

    After the files be made public, when Ruffalo, in a taxi in movement, reads a letter that speaks of the violation of seven boys from a family, the camera tracks the vehicle to stop in a father who plays with a child in a playground: it's an image-tabloid, debtor of a spirit of prosaic affectionateness, contrary to a sense of discursive correctness. It's a solid script in an anodyne or wrong film writing.

  • HenriqueA's rating of the film Spotlight

    McCarthy has (almost) always been really good working with small portions, but here he has scope, he has big stars and he has command. Spotlight is a film about something so deeply dark and fucked up, but still manages not to make a circus out of it. I think I loved everything about it.

  • Huey McEvoy's rating of the film Spotlight

    Worthy subject aside, the writing and execution just seem spreadsheeted to attract maximum middlebrow awards attention. Tucci and Schreiber are (unsurprisingly) great, but - and I mean no disrespect - I'm baffled as to why this has attracted so many acting accolades? One positive: I liked the absence of shadows, how every frame was evenly lit, as though there was nowhere to hide.

  • André Vieira's rating of the film Spotlight

    4."Impeccable acting--especially from Keaton, Ruffalo, and Tucci--great writing, confident and skillful directing, and an important story that needs to be told make Spotlight a sure cinematic winner."
