1) Investigative journalism at its best. The story of how two young reporters from “The Washington Post” uncovered the details of the Watergate scandal that leads to President Richard Nixon’s resignation.
2) A landmark movie in newspaper-movie genre documenting a significant event in US history.
1) A boring movie for an average viewer. Alan J. Pakula could’ve just made a documentary.
Deep Throat: Oh, I can’t tell you that.
Bob Woodward: But you could tell me that.
Deep Throat: No, I have to do this my way. You tell me what you know, and I’ll confirm. I’ll keep you in the right direction if I can, but that’s all. Just… follow the money.
