New week, new Thursday Movie Picks. This week it is Journalists/Reporters for Print/TV such as Lois Lane. Check out - http://wanderingthroughtheshelves.blogspot.co.uk/
Not the most original choice, but it is perhaps the most famous film about journalists (maybe except for Citizen Kane). The Watergate scandal not only caused the first (and so far only resignation) of a US president (Richard M Nixon), but it also led the way for every scandal to have a gate at the end, for example Crashgate (when a Formula 1 team deliberately crashed a car to bring out a safety car to favour a teammate's car), Deflategate (something to do with making balls lighter or something) and my personal favourite, Plebgate where Tory MP Andrew Mitchell called a policeman a pleb.
Next is the great British film The Killing Fields, the film follows two journalists as they document the horrors of the Cambodian Civil War fought between the Cambodian Army and Khmer Rouge. Really moving stuff.
Hitchcock's second American feature film, well worth a watch. It's tense and exciting as we follow an American reporter who uncovers a vast network of enemy spies in England.
