i liked it. it's about integrity. like the work of david simon, this is a work that understands how film is the ultimate support for a news report or a work of non-fiction. now that newspapers are a wasteland.
didn't find much to compare it to the big short, other than the fact that both films deal with workaholics , because, how else would these films be interesting if it wasn't with sleepless, intense characters? that seems to be a recurrence in newspaper films. that, and those khaki diaper butt pants.
there was a scene that i thought was inspiring : the moment Rezendes gets in the taxi and goes to the office to tell the rest of the team what was in the documents. the way that was done, with a voiceover that is happening in the office, while showing how he goes from the court building to the newspaper offices , and showing the city in between, i thought it was a way of making visual an idea that is expressed verbally earlier in the movie, that some institutions are best working independently.
