A film as passionate about the exposure of the corruption of one institution as it is ferociously proud of the integrity that can be shown by another, Tom McCarthy’s scintillating, superb “Spotlight” may just be the best film about inspirational investigative journalism since “All The President’s Men.” Marking not just a return to form for its director after the wild wobble of “The Cobbler,” it’s the best film McCarthy has ever made: restrained, intelligent and grown-up, but unfolding with the pacing and rhythm of a thriller.
