The quintessential news reporting movie, All the President’s Men is a great slow burn following Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein as they untangle the Watergate scandal.
Seeing the show in person was unlike anything I’ve seen before, and this version does a good job capturing the grander as well as the closer up details you just couldn’t get from the live show.
Sitting through the performances again, all I want is a feature length documentary showing how this whole thing was planned and executed behind the scenes during the show.
I saw this in a local theater in Portland it it may have been the best possible way to see it. The audience loved it and it was palpable how much it was resonating deeply with so many people there.
I don’t really have personal history with Barbie, so it didn’t land as hard for me, but it was funny as hell and tells a more nuanced story about gender roles than its critics give it credit for (if they even watched it).
