    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Those of you who don't work for a newspaper may also be interested in what it's like on the inside - how stories are generated, how editors and writers interact, etc. For what it's worth, it's an accurate portrait. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    The paper's motto is "All the News That's Fit to Print." But all that news doesn't necessarily fit neatly into a 90-minute doc. show more

    Joe Neumaier New York Daily News

    Emphasizing the importance of new media, Stelter is ready to bring the paper back to the future, though this terrific tale of an establishment in transition ultimately plays like "All the President's Men," with the intrigue coming from inside the building. show more

    Page One is an insider's view, but if it isn't raking up any muck, it's not a love letter either. show more

    While the media desk isn't the whole of the New York Times, it does give Rossi a solid perch from which to survey the paper's recent and ongoing struggle for both relevancy and revenues. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    I enjoyed the film very much. It was a visceral pleasure to see a hard-boiled guy like David Carr at its center. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    The movie is slick and entertaining, but much of it is as superficial as a Twitter post. show more

    What is their passion for? Not newspapers, or even a single newspaper, per se, but for journalism itself, the practice of which is nowhere stronger than at the Times. That, at least, is how Page One argues it. It's a compelling argument. show more

    As eye-opening as this movie is, the real story is outside the Times building, in the browser windows and iPads of me and you and everyone we know. show more

    This movies was so tilted towards the new york times. It glosses over the judithy Miller fiasco and leaves the impression that she was fired immediately after the fact of her involvement with the Bush admininstrations kies about Iraq came out. I took a long yome after that The director should not try to minipulate the facts to present a love letter to the new york yimr. Also, We are hit over the head constantly the if the the time stopped publishing the world would stop turning/. This is just self important nonsense.
