there’s not much of a narrative here, but the content and characters are interesting enough to make it watchable and memorable. being inside the world’s best, or at least most influential, newspaper is exciting and interesting. david carr is a standout as is the meeting he has with some of the guys from vice magazine. i can’t help but think that this is the beginning of a two and a half hour documentary that would have been epic. it could have gone over in greater detail the arc of the newspaper business, the ny times, the digitization and emerging nature of news, the logistics of embedded reporters, etc. they touch on much of this stuff, but not in great depth.
