'All the President's Men' (1976) - Best Movies #7

6 October 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There's no shortage of starting points from which to tackle 1976's All the President's Men, a timeless journalistic procedural that, if watched today, says as much about journalism over 40 years ago as much as it does about journalism today. "I think if Watergate happened today we wouldn't even know about it," said James Carville in Discovery Channel's 2013 retrospective "All the President's Men Revisited". Whether you believe that's the case or not, the idea of Watergate is now more of a punchline than anything else, "-gate" now becoming a suffix used by 24-hour media services to punch up the latest scandal, used for hashtag memes rather than any measure of actual reporting. Now I'm not as cynical when it comes to today's journalism as Carville, but I'm not necessarily too far behind. The idea of true investigative journalism has been placed on the back-burner. The public needs information right now »

Exclusive: Listen To Nathan Halpern's "Fourth Of July" From Sundance Winning Documentary 'Rich Hill'

30 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Filmmakers Andrew Droz Palermo and Tracy Droz Tragos didn't reinvent the wheel for their documentary "Rich Hill." They simply turned the camera on Andrew, Harley, and Appachey, three youngsters on the verge of adolescence in the titular small town, resulting in a movie that took the Best Documentary prize at this year's Sundance Film Festival. The film's score, composed by Nathan Halpern, is particularly key. He has a strong track record of documentary work behind him ("Marina Abramović: The Artist Is Present," "The Loving Story," "All the President's Men Revisited"): Below, you can hear the lovely tune, "Fourth Of July," from the "Rich Hill" soundtrack. "Rich Hill" opens in limited release on August 1st. The soundtrack will be available digitally on the same day via Halpern's Copticon Music, distributed by The Orchard on outlets like iTunes, Amazon and more. Listen below and check out »
