Synopsis:
In the Watergate Building, lights go on and four burglars are caught in the act. That night triggered revelations that drove a U.S. President from office. Washington reporters Bob Woodward (Robert Redford) and Carl Bernstein (Dustin Hoffman) grabbed the story and stayed with it through doubts, denials, and discouragement. The entire 'All the President's Men' is their story. The film also explores a working newspaper, where the mission is to get the story - and to get it right.

Still brilliant - All the President's Men review by JD

Spoiler Alert
22/04/2010

Redford and Hoffman are at the top of their game. The determined effort of these two to trick tight prise information out of the committees of the Whitehouse leaves a feeling of frustrated admiration. It is utterly immersing. There have been so many imitators since that you forget how brilliant it was.

Interesting to re-watch - All the President's Men review by EB

Spoiler Alert
22/11/2018

I saw this in the 1970s and with rather indifferent sound in the cinema struggled to follow some of the dialogue. Enjoyed revisiting it. It's a very tight focussed narrative. Some current parallels!

The stranger in the car park - All the President's Men review by BP

Spoiler Alert
05/02/2019

This film was a real disappointment to me - I thought Spotlight and the Post were excellent movies but this one really not.

I do appreciate it is an older movie and therefore the inspiration for subsequent Journalist movies such as the above, but still...

The movie seemed to have no structure. Essentially it appeared to consist of a repetition of the following :

1) Redford and Hoffman typing furiously then walking unreasonably quickly across their office to avoid missing the daily deadline (would it really have mattered if each of their stories had appeared in the next day's paper?)

2) Redford and Hoffman Turning up at people's houses/offices to ask them questions. Initially each person is reluctant to talk. Then with minimal cajoling, then talk at length.

Despite this the protagonists make painfully slow progress until eventually the 'mystery' is resolved by Redford who visits a random stranger in a car park for the third time. The stranger, presumably as fed up as the rest of us that the movie is now 2 hours old and no sign of a conclusion, basically tells Redford the solution.

It seems a shame that the stranger didn't just say this to Redford towards the beginning and the film could have been 30 minutes long.

No film is without positives in my opinion and Jason Robards is just great.
