Nixon review Product Description



Standard Screen; Soundtrack English

Using a nonchronological narrative style à la CITIZEN KANE (from which he quotes), director Oliver Stone explores former president Richard Nixon's strict Quaker upbringing, his nascent political strivings in law school, and his strangely self-effacing courtship of his wife, Pat (played by Joan Allen). The contradictions in his character are revealed early, in the vicious campaign against Helen Gahagan Douglas and the oddly masochistic Checkers speech.   ...See Full Description

Great political drama and fine acting
This 2008 Election Year Edition contains an extra 30 minutes of footage not previously included, making the present film 3 and a half hour long. This is a fine piece of political drama, and the director undertakes an in-depth and interesting study of Nixon’s character. The film begins with the height of the Watergate crisis and flashes back to various points in the past – including Nixon’s unhappy early years and his rise to power. Oliver Stone uses this technique to show how Nixon’s childhood and past experiences had shaped his character and relationships with people – which eventually led to the final tragedy. Anthony Hopkins shows some fine acting in playing the titular character, and he is well-supported by an all-star cast. The DVD Extras are a little disappointing. For example, the “Deleted Scenes” section is rather redundant, since almost all of them have been put back in this “extended director’s cut”. Also, I suspect few purchasers would actually run the two audio commentaries (one historical and the other on the film’s production), since their use would add another 7 hours of viewing time! Overall, this Edition is still a good buy if you do not already have this film, since it contains some additional material and its price is now no higher than the previous versions.

A Good Bio-pic
Director Oliver Stone delivers another compelling political drama, this time about the life of Richard Nixon. It handles the Watergate scandal carefully. The acting is great. The only downside is the movie is a little too long at 3 1/2 hours.

Nixon DVD Features



Anthony Hopkins electrifies the screen as NIXON in the acclaimed hit from controversial director Oliver Stone. Nominated for four Academy Awards(R), including best actor, Anthony Hopkins, 1995, NIXON takes a riveting look at a complex man whose chance at greatness was ultimately destroyed by his passion for power, when his involvement in conspiracy jeopardized the nation's security and the presidency of the United States. With a phenomenal all-star cast featuring Ed Harris, James Woods and Joan Allen, NIXON is a powerful motion picture. Included in this special 2-Disc Election Year Edition is an all-new 35-minute documentary on Nixon by Sean Stone you won't want to miss. Source: Buena Vista Home Entertainment
