IMDB Rating: 8.1
Director: Tom McCarthy
Starring: Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams
“Spotlight” tells the true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic Archdiocese, shaking the entire Catholic Church to its core. Where you must begin, with any praise for the film, is the audacious and fortifying script by Tom McCarthy and Josh Singer. The two create cinematic magic in their articulation of words, characters, and narrative storytelling. Each person feels authentic. Each scene feels rich and equally important as the last. And most of all, its the tightest, most satisfying film from beginning to end, seen this year. From minute one, you’re hooked, up until the last second, where they decide the last words spoken should be, “Spotlight” is astonishingly crafted.
Still in shock and awe that Tom McCarthy is the one who made Spotlight. This is a writer/director who I’ve appreciated but didn’t have the “love” factor surrounding any of his films. Paired with an outstanding cast, co-writer Josh Singer, editor Tom McArdle, cinematographer Masanobu Takayanagi and composer Howard Shore, Tom McCarthy gets a chance to create his masterpiece, and succeeds. He makes brilliant artistic choices, such as letting a Mark Ruffalo letter reading play over a 2-minute taxi car ride back to the newspaper. McCarthy’s direction is one of the best directorial efforts from any filmmaker this year thus far.
Michael Keaton and Rachel McAdams, who play “Robbie” and “Sacha” respectively, are attune with their characters and destinations. Each bring strong sensibilities and sensitivity to their roles that desperately call for them. Hotly worked into the story is Liev Schreiber as a newly appointed Editor, that in the little screen time he’s given, makes a long-lasting impression. Stanley Tucci is also afforded the same opportunity, and gives one of the film’s best monologues. If there’s a film this year that feels like an Oscar-winner, “Spotlight” sure does make a compelling case. Dramatic, heart- pounding, and necessarily made. Spotlight is one of the most important films this year and probably the best picture of the year. The Telluride tradition may continue.
