“Spotlight” is one of the best movies of the year; it’s a scorching drama about the damning sexual abuse scandal that rocked the Catholic Church to its core in 2002 and still has reverberations to this day.
The film is excellent due to its narrative patience and superb performances. This is exactly how a great drama should be made, and take note that it eschews the histrionic crutches that many dramas rely upon and instead focuses solely on the quality of the storytelling, which is impeccable.
