Though parts of the film drag, Neeson is terrific as Felt. That's saying something considering the character is as dispassionate and inscrutable as it's possible to be. But Neeson believably unpacks Felt's dignity and frustration.
Shot with an annoying lack of color, this is a less than compelling, but still moderately interesting, look at FBI agent Mark Felt aka DeepThroat, telling a Watergate story with no Bernstein and little Woodward.
The film's attempts to flesh out Felt's personal life fall flat and the story has a bit of trouble sticking the landing. Regardless, it's a fascinating story with a surprisingly strong tie to what's currently happening in the U.S. government.
