This is a good movie, a classic, pairing Redford and Hoffman in a perfect "odd couple" partnership and dealing with real world issues.

I watch the movie every so often but this time I got the edition with the 2nd disc and extra features.

The best part(s) of these features for me was when Redford acknowledged that he thought that the book and his film had set American media back on the right track but that he had been naive to believe that. He'd been quite the preservationist and do-gooder in his day but he has seemed to accept that you can slow things down or right a wrong but you can't fight entropy. The wisdom of years, I guess.

The other thing was the interview by Dinah Shore with Jason Robards. If I'd seen the interview as a kid, I'd probably have bought it but, as an adult, she seemed unprepared, babbling and possibly mildly high. I had to turn it off as she seemed like she was supplying generic superlatives and not really relating to Robards at all. Kind of irritating and embarassing.

Dustin Hoffman was entertaining and acknowledged how they were doing something fantastic and didn't even realize it, how things can be great even in what seem to be the worst of times.
