Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House


Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House
One of the biggest mysteries in politics and journalism was finally revealed in 2005, when special agent Mark Felt revealed that he was Deep Throat, the notorious source that helped journalists Woodward and Bernstein expose the Watergate scandal which led to President Nixon resigning. This unbelievable true story chronicles the personal and professional life of the brilliant and uncompromising Felt, who risked and ultimately sacrificed everything – his family, his career, his freedom – in the name of justice.

Cape Times
Ann Hornaday quote iconMeet Watergate's 'Deep Throat'.

Ilan Preskovsky quote iconBy all rights, it should be absolutely impossible to turn a story this gripping into a dud of a film, but writer/director Peter Landesman somehow managed to do exactly that. Dreary, humourless and dull, Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House should be a fantastically engaging, thrilling and sadly all too relevant political thriller but instead is every bit as clumsy and uninspired as its awful, awful title.
