Movie Info

Mark Felt - The Man Who Brought Down the White House centers on "Deep Throat", the pseudonym given to the notorious whistleblower for one of the greatest scandals of all time, Watergate. The true identity of the secret informant remained a mystery and source of much public curiosity and speculation for more than 30 years. That is until, in 2005, special agent Mark Felt shockingly revealed himself as the tipster. This unbelievable true story chronicles the personal and professional life of the brilliant and uncompromising Felt, who risked and ultimately sacrificed everything - his family, his career, his freedom - in the name of justice.

Critic Reviews for Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House

All Critics (63) | Top Critics (28)

Filmed in bleak green-gray hues, writer-director Peter Landesman's movie depicts D.C. as a nest of vipers, of conspiracies within conspiracies, of paranoia begetting paranoia.

October 16, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The film has all the subtlety of a term paper, even if the earliest scenes suggest otherwise.

October 13, 2017 | Full Review…

The furtive figure history knows best as Watergate snitch Deep Throat gets a movie treatment more suited to the printed page than the big screen.

October 13, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Landesman has wrangled a murderer's row of character actors here - Tom Sizemore! Ike Barinholtz! Michael C. Hall! Bruce Greenwood! - but his script and direction lack a distinct killer instinct.

October 13, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

This is a fact-rich but drama-poor film, constructed with professionalism but lacking passion.

October 12, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Why does this movie feel so tentative, so conflicted?
