Alan J. Pakula

KluteHanoi Barbarella is a prostitute who checks her watch when with a client. So much for the girlfriend experience. See the original Hawkeye Pierce be a dick (a private dick that is).
The Parallax View – More great Gordy Willis photography and script doctoring by Robert Towne. It’s not my favorite Pakula, but I think it got him the All The President’s Men job.

All The President’s Men – this is how you make a suspenseful film about a subject you already know the outcome for. Great script by William Goldman. Still excites me when I see it.

Presumed Innocent – I liked this one. Sort of a last hurrah for Pakula and the great D.P. Gordon Willis.
