Steven Spielberg’s The Post – a film about The Washington Post’s battle with the Nixon Administration over the publication of the Pentagon Papers – has two primary objectives. In the character of Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks), the assertive editor once interpreted by Jason Robards, Spielberg seeks to examine journalism’s role in modern society (à la Spotlight). And in the character of Kay Graham (Meryl Streep), the publisher who steered the Post through the 70s, Spielberg also wants to depict the difficulties women face in male-dominated workplaces.

To be sure, the film’s treatment of both of these themes begins quite promisingly.

Tom Hanks regrets too late.

When it comes to bad movies, there are bad movies, really bad movies, and movies that leave you wondering why the heck you decided to waste two hours sitting through them. Inferno doesn’t even try to break out of the third group.
