'Page One: Inside the New York Times' is sanguine about change. It describes it, captures it, but doesn't lament it.

As an avid media watcher, I didn't come away from this with any new insights, but the movie is a pretty good snapshot of the daily newspaper business in transition and turmoil.

As the film preened and poked around, something in me kept shouting, "stop press." Or maybe just, "stop."

If you're reading this article, chances are you have at least a passing interest in the role and value of newspapers. You like original reporting and writing enough to pay for it, online or on newsprint. And you'd probably enjoy Page One.

Page One is always about at least six subjects at once, firing like a scatter-gun and only occasionally hitting its targets.

Even if the movie fails to truly capture the inner workings of a newspaper and the amount of work required to print an issue every day, it's still a highly entertaining snapshot of a culture in the midst of a rapid transformation...

Worth watching even if it fails to deal with the paper's troubled relationship to the power elite that effectively makes it our Pravda.

An almost great documentary that isn't at all about what the title advertises. Maybe that's what keeps it from really scoring a homerun, I can't… More
