A Poignant Reminder Of A Past President's Downfall
on 12 July 2017
Based on The Washington Post journalists Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward's 1974 book
'All The President's Men', Alan J. Pakula's 1976 film was well-deserving of its four Academy
Awards. The narrative tension is superb and Dustin Hoffman and Robert Redford's performances
peerless. It remains, for my money, one of the finest docudramas ever made. A truly great movie.
With the current shenanigans of the Trump administration edging towards political meltdown
there has, perhaps, never been a better time to reacquaint oneself with this marvellous work.
