Spielberg amazes with 'The Pentagon Archives': Best Film of the Year for the National Board of Critics of the United States


The American organization National Board of Review (National Board of Review) or NBR for its acronym in English, unveiled its selection of best films and performances of 2017. According to account Vulture , the big winner is the biopic ' The Pentagon files '(The Post, 2017) by Steven Spielberg , which rose as the best movie of the year and also, its protagonists Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks received awards as Best Actress and Actor.

After giving the blow at the Gotham Awards 2017 , he went on to recognize Jordan Peele's ' Let Out ' (2017), which won awards for Best Cast and Best New Director. Greta Gerwig was also recognized as Best Director for her ' Lady Bird ' and ' Coco ' for Disney-Pixar is the best animated film. Other awards were Best Original Screenplay for Paul Thomas Anderson for 'The Invisible Thread ' (Phantom Thread), Best Supporting Actress for Laurie Metcalf for ' Lady Bird ' and Best Supporting Actor for Willem Dafoe for ' The Florida Project '.

' The Pentagon archives ' is centered on the investigation that the journalists of the New York Times carried out to obtain secret information about the Vietnam War and some judicial processes that provoked a media scandal. In addition to the prizes (and they will come ) There are first reactions of the criticism that has manifested itself in social networks with comments like these.

The Pentagon Files is excellent. It's obvious but it must be said: Streep and Hanks are fantastic. The story takes some time, but I was very moved by the experience of Katharine Graham (Meryl Streep) and how incredibly important it is to tell this story right now.

'The Pentagon Archives' is an important film, not only for history but for our present. Streep is amazing. My audience broke into clapping at least 6 times during the movie. The best of Spielberg from Munich.

I loved 'The Pentagon files'. Streep: his best role in years. Hanks: charmingly irascible. The rest of the cast: great. I expected this representation of journalism in an energetic and sentimental way, not that it was the first openly feminist film of Spielberg from 'The color purple' (1985).

It would not be surprising if Streep got his twentieth Oscar nomination. However, the awards of the National Board do not usually coincide with those of the academy. These were all the winners of the night :
