You could say that Nixon is Oliver Stone's Citizen Kane, and not necessarily mean it as praise. Full Review

Rating: A- -- The filmmaker's deftness at evoking theme and sentiment through editorial montages within individual dramatic scenes reaches an apotheosis here. Full Review

Rating: 1.5/5 -- It's clear that Stone hates Nixon with a capital H. Full Review

Stone’s film, like others in his oeuvre, plays fast and loose with history, feeling more like an opera than a documentary. But that seems fitting for Nixon...

Rating: 4/4 -- Stone had just come off of his blast of overcooked insanity Natural Born Killers, and he applies some of that rebellious invention to this otherwise sober undertaking. Full Review

Product Description:

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. His defeat at the hands of the hated and envied John F. Kennedy in the 1960 presidential election, followed by the loss of the 1962 California gubernatorial race, seem to signal the end of his career. Yet, although wholly lacking in charisma, Nixon remains a brilliant political operator,
seizing the opportunity provided by the backlash against the antiwar movement
to take the presidency in 1968. It is only when safely in office, running far ahead in the polls for the 1972 presidential election, that his growing paranoia comes to full flower, triggering the Watergate scandal.

Surprisingly, Stone evinces considerable compassion as he gives us a Nixon of tragic stature and nearly Shakespearean dimension in this powerfully moving film. The star-studded cast, including Ed Harris and James Woods, complements Hopkins's extraordinary performance.

  • The film grossed $13.7 million domestically.
  • The film includes color, black and white, 35mm, and Super-8 film.
  • The Los Angeles Film Critics Association and the Boston Society of Film Critics each voted Joan Allen best supporting actress of 1995. The Los Angeles Film Critics Association also voted Anthony Hopkins runner-up for its best actor award.

  • Director Oliver Stone's original choice for the role of Richard Nixon was Tom Hanks.
