A timely political drama for the Trump era. Director Alan J. Pakula (Sophie's Choice, The Pelican Brief) carefully reconstructs when two green reporters and rivals working for the Washington Post - Bob Woodward (Robert Redford) and Carl Bernstein (Dustin Hoffman) - research the botched 1972 burglary of the Democratic Party Headquarters at the Watergate apartment complex.
With the help of a mysterious source, code-named Deep Throat (Hal Holbrook), the two reporters make a connection between the burglars and a White House staffer. Despite dire warnings about their safety, the duo follows the money all the way to the top.
This taut, solidly acted paean to the benefits of a free press and the dangers of unchecked power are made all the more effective by its origins in real-life events.
The production values, acting and intelligent screenplay are first-class. This landmark film still ranks as one of the best American-made political films.
