Ten films to restore your faith in journalism September 18, 2011

Posted by Daniel Stephens in : Uncategorized , trackback

It’s a pretty rough time for journalism, as the phone hacking scandal rumbles on, so why not look for some escapism in this list? We’re looking for escapism (so no documentaries) and films where the reporter is the hero (so nothing like Shattered Glass, about a reporter who made up his sources, or The Sweet Smell of Success, in which Burt Lancaster plays a crooked columnist.)

Julia Kukiewicz takes a look at ten films where the journalist is king. From Grant Hezlov’s The Men Who Stare At Goats based on investigative journalist Jon Ronson’s experiences to the infamous Watergate scandal and the work of Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein in All The President’s Men.
