Steven Spielberg’s excellent Pentagon Papers exposé thriller comes straight from the facts. If the project wasn’t begun in 2014 we’d think it was a direct response to today’s attacks on the news media. We’ll take it as that anyway. It’s a fine performing showcase for Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, and the direction creates exciting drama without a single car chase, assassination attempt or superhero. Co-starring Sarah Paulson, Bob Odenkirk, Tracy Letts, Matthew Rhys, Alison Brie, Jesse Plemons, Michael Stuhlbarg. On Blu-ray + DVD from 20th Fox.
