Saw it on the airplane. I really liked it. Jack Nicholson
is so awesome.

Last night [livejournal.com profile] quietchris and I watched All The President's Men (IMDB, Wikipedia). This movie is about the start of Watergate and the reporters that investigated it.

This move is definitely one to add to your NetFlix (do it right now!).

Considering what we're going through with Bush Jr, it's important to see what real journalism looks like, and how difficult it is.

It's important to remember that Watergate wasn't about a break-in. It was about a President that decided to use the power of the CIA to make sure he won re-election. Seeing it develop, and the FBI being complacent in making sure the investigation was steered away from the really bad stuff, was really a wake up call.

When people say I'm cynical about Republican politics, I'm going to just say, "Have you seen All The President's Men"?

I finally saw it last night on DVD with [livejournal.com profile] quietchris (she has NetFlix). I’m glad I finally got to see it.

I didn’t find it as sad as everyone else said it was, but I think that’s mostly because I’ve seen this kind of relationship in the bisexual community dozens of times and almost feel a certain, well, I don’t know the right word for it. Empathy? Nostalgia? No, neither of those words are right. I guess I look at it as a bit of history, captured for all to see. However, at the same time I realize that this isn’t a historical “past” for many people, it is the present. There are many men I meet at support groups that are in this kind of situation today. Some are happy with it. Others aren’t. It is what it is.
