Dir. Alan Pakula. 1976, 138 mins. 35mm. With Dustin Hoffman, Robert Redford. Washington D.C.’s sun-dappled brightness and a fluorescent-lit newsroom are set against the dark world of the Watergate scandal in Pakula’s political thriller. With its virtuoso opening sequence (filmed at the Library of Congress), its elaborate deep-focus photography, and its dynamic blend of static and moving compositions, this is one of Willis’s finest achievements.
