A recurring column about journalism in film. Read the inaugural post about His Girl Friday here

Kill the Messenger (2014) is a fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat crime thriller based on the true story of American journalist Gary Webb. Jeremy Renner stars as Webb, who uncovers the alleged role the CIA plays in importing crack cocaine into the U.S. to fund Nicaraguan contra rebels. Webb is warned to stay away from the story but persists and publishes it under the series Dark Alliance. The CIA then proceeds to launch a smear campaign against Webb who faces tremendous obstacles to keep his family and reputation intact. An inspiring watch for investigative, powerful journalism.
