Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

It helps to have one of history's greatest scoops as your factual inspiration, but journalism thrillers just don't get any better than All the President's Men. Dustin Hoffman and Robert Redford are perfectly matched as (respectively) Washington Post reporters Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward, whose investigation into the Watergate scandal set the stage for President Richard Nixon's eventual resignation. Their bestselling exposé was brilliantly adapted by screenwriter William Goldman, and director Alan Pakula crafted the film into one of the most intelligent and involving of the 1970s paranoid thrillers. Featuring Jason Robards in his Oscar-winning role as Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee, All the President's Men is the film against which all other journalism movies must be measured. --Jeff Shannon

1.0 out of 5 stars won't play in canada Feb. 24 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I've seen this movie a couple of times and really enjoyed it so when it came out in blue ray I jumped all over it. Was totally disappointed that the product had a sticker stuck on the back of sleeve making it look like it was produced in United States but it was actually made in Mexico and won,t play in my blue ray player. I bought this off amazon.ca about 6 months ago and actually did a blue ray software upgrade about 5 months ago but still the disk did not play.I should have returned this product right away.

4.0 out of 5 stars remembering the times Feb. 17 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I remember when this story broke and how it developed.
I remember Nixon leaving office in disgrace.
I remember leaving the US for Canada as all this was going down.
It was just that the mighty fell.
And for those who love democracy:
remember that one person (like 'deep throat')
can change history if they choose to get involved!

5.0 out of 5 stars The real deal on Watergate Feb. 5 2012
Format:DVD
This is an excellent movie for those who like to think. The story is spell-binding, the acting is admirable. And...no one can run like Robert Redford.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get the story, and get it right June 5 2005
Format:DVD
The mystery is a mystery no more. We now know "Deep Throat" is W. Mark Felt, who was deputy director of the FBI at the time. Some call him a hero, others a traitor. I think Felt had a lot of guts, and in the end he did the right thing and in so doing became one of the world's first whistleblowers. The fact that Hal Holbrook (who plays Deep Throat in the movie) bears an uncanny resemblance to Felt makes for even more incredulous viewing.
This movie, with an all star cast (including Robert Redford, Dustin Hoffman, Jason Robards, F. Murray Abraham, Meredith Baxter, Polly Holliday, Stephen Collins, Ned Beatty, etc., and even the real Frank Wills, the Watergate security guard who first reported the break-in) is a must see film for any journalism student or anyone who is just fascinated by the biggest scandal of the 20th century. The jacket cover says it all: "Get the story -- and get it right."
Watch this movie, and you'll find out how Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein got the story, and how they refused to crack under incredible pressure to back off. We also learn among other things how they nearly blew it all when they got one part of the story right, but named the wrong source.
Today's crop of journalists don't hold a candle to Woodstein. After you see this movie, you'll know why -- and why we need guys and gals like them more than ever, especially in these troubled times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blast from the Past June 4 2004
Format:DVD
"All the President's Men" remains one of my favorites. Not only was it produced so well, it's also a textbook for screenwriting.
Woodward and Bernstein's book of the same title was an account of their Watergate reporting. In it they very wisely referred to themselves as a unified, second-tier character in third-person, which allowed them to get out of the way of their own reporting.
William Goldman's screen adaptation was inspired and brilliant. The job of any screenwriter adapting a work is to realize the smaller, and separate, story within the original that will be the cinematic story. Although Richard Nixon was Woodward and Bernstein's main character, Goldman realized the cinematic story was about two young reporters unheard of outside the DC area, and that without guard Frank Wills discovering a piece of tape on a lock things most likely would have remained that way. The action, then, is in the newsroom, not the White House.
Any serious screenwriter hopeful should read the book, then take apart the film version to see how it's done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping May 22 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
_All the President's Men_ is the story of how two reporters, Woodward and Bernstein of the Washington Post, uncovered the Watergate Scandal. I was not alive during this time, so I did not witness anything that actually happened, but I certainly gained a better understanding of it from this movie. Hoffman and Redford are brilliant (not to mention dead sexy) as the two earnest, tenacious reporters. The supporting cast is wonderful, too. Some people have said there is little or no suspense in this movie, but I think they must be off their rockers. I was so tense watching this movie, wondering what would happen next, if their lead would pan out, or if they would have to start all over. There is a minimum of background music, which just adds to the over-all atmosphere. Maybe the movie isn't suspenseful in the same way as a normal mystery or thriller would be, but it's still intense, still nail-bitingly gripping. I think everyone should see this movie.

BLU-RAY review

Did the media change since "Watergate"?
This is what journalist Linda Ellerbee had to say:

"The media today, much of it, is heavily into self-censorship. They do not pursue stories that they do not believe will be popular with the readers or viewers, particular television. Television is about offending the fewest because it's about filling the seats. In television it's important to remember that the product is not the program. The product is the audience and the consumer is the advertiser."

BD has wrong aspect ratio: !.78:1 instead of original 1.85:1.
Contrast is a bit weak, rather dark on some shots. Although this might have been intentional, (DP: Gordon Willis, aka 'Prince of Darkness' (P. Biskind) "The Godfather", "Klute") to accentuate contrast between political DC ("dark") and neon-lit Washington Post office rooms ("enlightenment"??)
Sharpness varies from satisfactory (e.g. TC 00:13:52, 00:30:52, 01:12:53 (close ups) and 01:37:19-33 (long shots) to more DVD-like levels (e.g. TC 00:08:42, 00:12:22, 00:23:26, 00:41:40, 01:12:19 (medium long shot).
Probably picture was zoomed in to fit 16:9 full-screen?
