26. SHATTERED GLASS (2003) SUBJECT: Stephen Glass
In the late '90s, a young journalist named Stephen Glass enjoyed a meteoric rise to prominence by writing a series of access-heavy articles for Washington's elite weekly, The New Republic. Thing is, he fabricated just about everything. And got caught. Hayden Christensen — in a performance that underlines just how wasted he was in the Star Wars films — makes Glass the worst kind of liar: he came to believe that his lies were the truth. —Marc Bernardin
All the President's Men (1976)
The Watergate scandal was a transformative event in American politics. So transformative, in fact, that Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein — the wonky reporters who uncovered the extent of Richard Nixon's corruption — were played by box-office idols Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman in the 1976 adaptation of Woodward and Bernstein's nonfiction book.
