Our Score
This Oscar-winning thriller about the Watergate burglary is one of the best movies ever made about American politics. Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman star as the two Washington Post reporters (Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein) whose stubborn digging ultimately brings down President Nixon. William Goldman's script brilliantly clarifies the multilayered labyrinth of corruption, while Alan J Pakula's tense direction draws telling parallels between the blazing white open-plan offices of the Post (no secrets here) and the dark murky world of Washington politics. There's great support, too, from Jason Robards as the Post's editor, Ben Bradlee, and Hal Holbrook as creepy informant "Deep Throat".


The true story of Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, who persevered in their investigation of the links between the Watergate break-in and the White House, a scandal that eventually forced the resignation of President Nixon. Alan J Pakula's drama, starring Robert Redford, Dustin Hoffman, Jason Robards and Hal Holbrook.
