Landesman directed the 2017 thriller Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House, starring Liam Neeson as Mark Felt, the whistleblower Deep Throat who exposed President Nixon. Diane Lane played Felt's wife, Audrey. The film was released September 29, 2017 by Sony Pictures Classics.


Landesman wrote and directed the 2015 sports drama film Concussion starring Will Smith, about the Pittsburgh forensics pathologist who uncovered the disease, CTE, in football players, the result of years of concussions and thousands of sub-concussive blows. The pathologist, Dr. Bennet Omalu (Smith's character) makes a David v Goliath journey to tell the truth about the dangers of football in the face of criticism and pressure from the NFL and mainstream media. The film was released on December 25, 2015. Landesman co-wrote HBO's 2017 adaptation of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.

Being of Jewish descent, in August 2015 he signed – as one of 98 members of the Los Angeles Jewish community – an open letter supporting the proposed nuclear agreement between Iran and six world powers led by the United States "as being in the best interest of the United States and Israel."


Landesman also wrote the script of a 2014 thriller film Kill the Messenger, a true story about a journalist Gary Webb, based on two books Kill the Messenger by Nick Schou and Dark Alliance by Webb. The film stars Jeremy Renner and was directed by Michael Cuesta.


As a filmmaker, he wrote and directed the biographical films Parkland (2013), Concussion (2015) and Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House (2017).

In October 2013, Landesman was set to re-write and direct Down by the River, based on a 2002 non-fiction book of same name by Charles Bowden, while Henry Bean wrote the first script.


In October 2008, Warner Bros. acquired the rights to an action thriller Colombian hostage pitch, and set Landesman to write the script of the film. In June 2011, it was reported that David O. Russell and Brad Pitt were in talks to direct and star in the film, respectively. The film about 15 hostages in the Colombian jungle was titled as The Mission.


Landesman's article The Girls Next Door about sex slaves and the trafficking of young and often underage women into and through the United States, was featured as the cover story in the January 24, 2004 issue of The New York Times Magazine. Daniel Radosh had a public dispute with Landesman, when Radosh challenged the facts of the article. A series of articles about the dispute by Jack Shafer in the magazine Slate turned the issue of the article's accuracy into one of the most controversial topics in journalism during the first half of 2004. The details of the expose were challenged. That piece triggered a national conversation on sex trafficking in this country, and, notwithstanding the controversy over Landesman's accuracy, won Landesman his second Overseas Press Club Award, this one for Best Human Rights Reporting. The article was adapted into a film Trade deals with human trafficking out of Mexico and a brother's attempt to rescue his kidnapped and trafficked young sister. The film was released in 2007.


Landesman wrote his first fiction book The Raven, which was published in 1995, for which he won the American Academy of Arts and Letters Sue Kaufman Prize for First Fiction.
