ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN
Sky Atlantic, Thurs 9th October 11.05pm
So this is a new aspect of my blog: each week I’m going to pick a film from those being shown on British TV. It may be a film that I love and want to share with you guys, or a film that I want to see and that you might too. This week’s film is All the President’s Men, the movie adaptation of Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward’s book accounting their press coverage of the Nixon administration following the Watergate break in. I’ve read the book as well as having seen the film, and will say that the book is better if only for the reason that it goes into more depth than the film does (or can – at over 2 hours it goes into as much depth as it can without becoming a miniseries). However, don’t let that put you off. If it’s too late at night, get it recorded on Sky+. It’s well worth a watch.
