How The French Dispatch Shows the Lighter Side of Journalism

Stories about journalists make for terrific drama. In a narrative setting, investigative journalists play the same part in their stories as private eyes do in mysteries. Uncovering clues, chasing leads, and eventually exposing the truth. However, with journalists, there is the added weight, usually, of bringing down powerful people who do not deserve their power, making them crusaders of justice more than clever minds putting together a puzzle. When executed properly, films about journalists garner a plethora of critical and awards attention, from Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein (Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman, respectively) breaking the Watergate scandal in All the President's Men to the Boston Globe's Spotlight team exposing the ring of pedophile priests within the Catholic Church in Spotlight. Particularly when focused on the work of real-life journalists, each of these films make an excellent case for why the investigative journalist provides a valuable service to society, able to bring forward matters of global importance with extreme implications on how people live their day-to-day lives.
