Spotlight vs. All The President's Men

Even though I think both movies are worthy of their own episodes and discussions, I think it would be really interesting to see them compared side by side

Been having this debate since December in our household. While I have major respect for both, and more so for ATPM for its impact, I view Spotlight as a superior film. Stellar ensemble beats the two man show (however good) of Hoffman/Redford, Spotlight doesn't have the pacing issues of ATPM, and in my opinion making an anti-Nixon film after he's resigned is a lot les ballsy than an anti-Vatican film in the midst of the ongoing scandal and when the Pope is so popular.
