All the President’s Men – 1976

Probably one of the most upsetting true stories of all time. The Watergate scandal is one of those stories that doesn’t need to be revisited, and yet it is compelling every single time. Americans love a good scandal, but this story, now forty years old is a dangerous story with the potential to repeat itself very soon. Both Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman are gifted actors, and both feel like they took to their roles as Woodward and Bernstein naturally. The chemistry that they shared never felt forced and helped to make the already realistic film seem even more real. Painful as this film may be to watch, it’s message is important and the role that the media plays here is exactly the standard to which they should be held.

Not a traditional thriller, but compelling all the same and it’s hard to look away.

Political intrigue is always enjoyable and this one is especially good…

4.5 out of 5
