Whether blasted in a blessedly air-conditioned megaplex, or projected on a roof-deck after dark, movies make a summer. The forthcoming July/August issue of our magazine features reviews of the recent The Bang Bang Club, a fictional portrayal of the real group of war photographers working in South Africa in the nineties, and the documentary Page One: Inside The New York Times. And on CJR.org this summer, we will debut a series on some classic journalism-themed movies throughout the decades. Each Friday, starting this week, we’ll highlight a different movie and reflect on how it represents our great profession.

So help us make a list: What are your favorite movies about reporting, editing, broadcasting, and publishing? And why?

If you'd like to get email from CJR writers and editors, add your email address to our newsletter roll and we'll be in touch.
