The film also features an Academy Award-winning performance from Jason Robards, Jr. (Best Supporting Actor, 1976), who plays Washington Post managing editor Ben Bradlee. There are also stellar supporting performances from, among others, Hal Holbrook as "Deep Throat," Jane Alexander as "the Bookkeeper," and Jack Warden as Washington Post local news editor Harry Rosenfeld.
This particular 2-disc Special Edition of “All the President’s Men” features a new feature-length documentary entitled “All the President’s Men Revisited.” This superb film, executive produced and narrated by Robert Redford, features interviews with many of the central figures in the Watergate affair, and sheds new light on what actually happened during that critical period in American history.
Although “All the President’s Men” can be a bit slow moving at times, I find the film always tense, taut, and thrilling. I watch this film frequently, and never fail to become totally engrossed as “Woodstein” slowly but surely unravel what became the single biggest political scandal in American history. “All the President’s Men” is one of my all-time favorite films, and simply should not be missed.
The film version obviously embellished some things. Many such embellishments made towards the character of Deep Throat, who when he revealed his identity in real life lamented a lot of the characters more iconic mannerisms.
The movie is for the most part pretty accurate to the actual events though. And while most people know how the story ends, in this film, it's the journey towards discovery rather than the destination. It's really interesting just seeing the two protagonists pick through evidence, and smash their minds together to figure more of the story out.
Movie is pretty well realized and acted. Both Dustin Hoffman and Robert Redford brought their A games as two devoted and energetic journalists. Though they were both A list actors at the time, I think it's good casting beyond just name recognition. The chemistry they had on-screen, even going so far as to talk over each other and sound natural doing it was performed quite well.
This is a very entertaining film about a rather interesting, to say the least, chapter in American history. And while it does have it's embellishments, is still a true enough account of what actually happened that this movie does transcend above just being headline news hotness. It's a well crafted movie that is also fairly crowd pleasing, and one I recommend whole heartedly.
It is difficult to critique the set design and other technical aspects of the movie because it was filmed so soon after the actual events happened there wasn't much time for things to change....because of this, you won't find a movie with a more realistic feel to it than this one. You are quite literally there to observe what happened.
I also want to recognise the director and writers' homage to Lawrence of Arabia (the greatest movie ever made, which shall never be surpassed). The trick really is 'not minding that it hurts'. One of the great quotes from Lawrence of Arabia inserted into this movie as a subtle commentary on American politics.
