All the President's Men (1976)

Starring Dustin Hoffman, Robert Redford, and Hal Holbrook; Directed by Alan J. Pakula

This is a thrilling look at a couple of young newspaper reporters (Woodward and Bernstein) at the Washington Post. They’re following the story of a minor break-in at the Watergate Hotel wherever it leads. This time, it leads to the White House and presidential misconduct. (Where are the Woodwards and Bernsteins of today?!) Like a police procedural, this movie really gives you a kinetic feel for how reporters do their job.
