Spotlight is a gripping detective story and a superlative newsroom drama. - A. O. Scott, New York Times

It's these survivors who give Spotlight its beating heart. - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Like any good reporting job, Spotlight slowly builds momentum from nothing, gathering disparate bits of information into an emotional juggernaut of a story. - David Sims, The Atlantic

It’s not a stretch to suggest that “Spotlight” is the finest newspaper movie of its era, joining “Citizen Kane” and “All the President’s Men” in the pantheon of classics of the genre. - Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
