Description

Based on the true story of the most famous anonymous man in American history: Mark Felt, the FBI second-in-command who was the "Deep Throat" whistleblower in the 1970s Watergate scandal. Few know about the personal and professional life of the man who risked sacrificing everything, including his family, career, and ultimately his freedom, to bring what he knew to light. The film shows us Watergate as we've never seen it before, flipping the perspective from All the President's Men's journalists-on-the-street to a view from the highest offices of power, an extraordinary window into a government in turmoil.

    Landesman’s film about one of the most Infamous people in recent American history is an incredibly bland, flat, and unfortunately boring tale. The film suffers from zero attention to a quick and rapid edit that ultimately lacks any form of entertainment. There’s a lot to cover here with the history and characters a lone, made even worse with having to create an intense and atmospheric cohesive film, which unfortunately the film fails to achieve on all fronts. Especially with strange choices regards sub-plots that have absolutely no relevance or intrigue.
