2. All The President’s Men

Genre: Drama

Release Year: 1976

One of the most potent and important movies ever, All The President’s Men is a look at the necessity of a free press and asking the right questions in the face of an impossible mountain.

Starring Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman, the film tackles the two dogged journalists who are slowly uncovering the Watergate incident and its ramifications. It’s a brilliant drama that shows the lengths, hurdles and personal dedication to get the story right, the hard work to find the facts and follow them wherever they may lead.

Because at its heart, All The President’s Men is about facts. Despite taking on a power far greater than themselves, Woodward and Bernstein manage to uncover something deeper and corrupt, the start of something that changed history in America with Nixon and the Watergate break-in scandal.

Redford and Hoffman are wonderful in the movie, the time and place and difficulty captured so perfectly, that makes it one of the most interesting movies of not only its time but on Netflix’s platform.
