    Somewhat diluted in its split focus on Richard Nixon’s presidential malfeasance and the movie devoted to those acts, the two-hour doc doesn’t break much new ground, but does pore over familiar terrain, and its lingering implications, in an entertaining way.

    [A] powerful and impressive 40th anniversary retrospective on the Watergate case and the movie it spawned, “All the President’s Men.”

    While the story is briskly and engagingly told, with some key players debriefed, there's not a lot new here. It's a very good beginner's history.

    More a sketch than a thorough retelling--though still recommended as such--and as balanced as you can be about the scandal given the facts, the film begins at the end, or just before it, with the remarkable, once much-bootlegged footage of Nixon preparing to resign.

    All the President’s Men Revisited is nonetheless well worth a look, less because it is so well made than because the subject is still so captivating.

    This excellent, Robert Redford-narrated look at both the Watergate scandal and the film it inspired backs up the comic's [Louis C.K.'s] assertion about politics never being more insane.

    While little here will be new to viewers with memories of the original events, it is all rehashed lucidly and may well prove eye-opening to younger viewers.
