Poll: The Movies That Knew Too Much

"The answer my friend, is blowin' the whistle..."

Steven Spielberg's upcoming (and anticipated) The Post (2017) seems like a solid companion to famous "whistle-blowing" movies like recent Best Picture winner Spotlight (2015) or the classic All the President's Men (1976). Tom Hanks even reprised the role of Ben Bradlee that earned Jason Robards an Oscar in 1977.

There is a reason why whistle-blowing movies are so inspirational (and a bit Oscar-baity): they deal with the struggles of everyday heroes or heroines, fictional or real, triumphant or tragic, who had the courage to jeopardize their lives by revealing hidden injustices, unveiling shocking scandals or asking controversial questions... here's one that won't be too controversial for once.

Which of these whistle-blowing movies is your favorite?
