Movie review: ‘Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House’ lacks emotion and energy

Review: ‘Mark Felt’ looks at the man behind Deep Throat
As a lifetime Federal Bureau of Investigation agent and No. 2 to J. Edgar Hoover, Mark Felt was not exactly an ordinary man, but he was, it seems, a highly unlikely candidate to topple a presidency. Felt was the man behind Deep Throat, the Watergate whistleblower who led Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein to the explosive truth behind that break-in.
