Accurate Investigative Journalism

One of the most believable films to be based off of a true life occurrence. Not once does the level of authenticity break, or succumb to any noticeable truth stretching for dramatic purposes. The tangled nature of the Watergate Scandal is unraveled from the perspective of the reporters. This makes for an intriguing watch, as we are subject to firsthand investigative journalism. I was likened to approach. It wasn't necessarily a straight-forward 'political thriller', but it was still very much involving to witness the effort that goes into finding and writing the facts. I only had minor issues with the immense entanglement of the 'who' and 'why'. Even while giving my full attention, a little more subtle explanation would've been helpful.
