The 1970s: Pushing the Boundaries

A Film Center retrospective on the most groundbreaking films to come out of the 1970s.


About the film:

Two journalists investigate a routine break-in at the Democratic Party Headquarters at the Watergate Building and happen upon the story of the century.

“remarkably intelligent, working both as an effective thriller… and as a virtually abstract charting of the dark corridors of corruption and power”

Time Out

Winner of four Academy Awards in 1977 and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress in 2010. Based on the memoir by Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein about political dirty tricks in the nation’s capital, All the President’s Men (1976) is a rare example of a best-selling book that was transformed into a hit theatrical film and a cultural phenomenon in its own right.

About the filmmakers:

Alan J. Pakula was an American film director, writer, and producer. He received Academy Award nominations for Best Picture for To Kill A Mockingbird (1962), Best Writing for Sophie’s Choice (1982), and Best Director for All the President’s Men (1976) – the final installment in his “paranoia trilogy” preceded by Klute (1971) and The Parallax View (1974). Pakula’s later features include book adaptations Presumed Innocent (1990) and The Pelican Brief (1993), and his final film The Devil’s Own (1997).
