An interesting counterbalance to All The President's Men, with Watergate and the abuse of power as its underlying themes. Mark Felt of the FBI, a man of intelligence and integrity, begins to see the only course open to him is to work against his own government as a source for the reporters whose stories ultimately bring down the Nixon White House. Liam Neeson has been spending the last few years playing action roles in generally forgettable revenge thrillers, but this return to a character study role is welcome, as he invests Felt, the real life Deep Throat informant, with qualities of principle and fortitude that the man himself must have had. Very well recommended, particularly in the current environment with a man in the Oval Office who is far worse than Nixon ever was.

Viewing this film, it's uncanny how the coverups are still happening right now with #45 -- although so much more transparent than it was in Nixon's time. Went to Wikipedia to learn more about Mark Felt...which is enlightening. We don't have too many of his kind around anymore...unless they are flying low under the radar.

This film is a testament to the patriotism and dedication to the truth uncovered by Mark Felt. While not wholly clean, Felt helped to bring down an unethical, devious and power-hungry President. Felt is unfortunately not recognized for his contribution to American justice and society.

Not as gripping as All the President's, but good all the same.

An outstanding movie.. and a good watch for our times.. shows how a president can try to control the FBI for their own advantage. President Nixon played dirty tricks to win the election When the FBI investigated the wire tapping done by Nixon's men, Nixon then president tried to block the FBI. Sound familiar?

If you are a Watergate junkie (guilty as charged), you will like this. It's certainly no ATPM (one of my all-time favs), but seeing this familiar story told from the perspective of Deep Throat, provides a few new insights. And the movie benefits from current events. Much of Felt's outrage is directed toward a WH administration that is trying to improperly and illegally influence the FBI to drop investigations into the Watergate affair. Sound familiar?!
