All the President’s Men
This 1976 drama stars Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman as young Washington Post journalists who uncover the Watergate scandal with the help of the mysterious whistleblower, Deep Throat. Director Alan Pakula creates a remarkably absorbing drama that moves without hurry, following each step of the history-making Nixon-Watergate journalistic investigation. A chilling reminder of the absolute importance of a free press in democratic countries where powerful people still believe they can rise above the law. The film won an Oscar for best screenplay, but it’s the camera angles, editing and acting that take the film to the next level.
