There a lot of movies about journalism. A lot more than you might think. And most of them, actually, are quite good.
It’s not like sports. For every sports classic such as “Hoosiers” or “Raging Bull” or “Bull Durham,” there’s a dog like “Caddyshack 2” or “Rocky V” or “Blades of Glory.”
This isn’t like movies about presidents. For every “Lincoln,” there’s an “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.”
Most journalism movies, even the ones that aren’t exactly like the day-to-day lives of flesh-and-blood journalists, are still pretty entertaining. Many perfectly capture the journalistic experience.
That’s why coming up with a list of the 25 best ever movies about journalism was not easy. Yet, we’re confident in our selections. So grab your popcorn and take in our 25 Greatest Movies About Journalism.
