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 is presented as never before in this fully remastered Election Year Edition. Included is an all-new documentary by Sean Stone featuring interviews with notable Washington insiders including White House Counsel to President Nixon, John Dean, and author Gore Vidal. 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 you won't want to miss.
Oliver Stone's controversial drama about the Nixon years in the White House stars Anthony Hopkins in a genuinely great performance as the scandal-plagued president. The film attempts to wed suggestions of Nixon's formative experiences as a boy to his political connections with shady movers and shakers and finally to his self-destructive tenure in the Oval Office. The Watergate scandal is revisited rather impressionistically--it may be hard for viewers who weren't alive then to get a sense of what the crisis was about. The parade of stars playing figures in Nixon's orbit--J.T. Walsh as John Ehrlichman, James Woods as Bob Haldeman, David Hyde Pierce as John Dean, etc.--is fun if a tad distracting. Joan Allen got a well-deserved Oscar nomination as First Lady Pat Nixon, and Hopkins got one as well. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It's impossible to watch "Nixon" without seeing the parallels with Welles' masterpiece. The fragmented narrative, the self-reflexive camera techniques, the newsreel, the portrait... Read morePublished on July 3 2009 by Ralston McTodd
Oliver Stone said that he thought this film and his film, "JFK", are his "Godfather Part One and Two". I am in complete agreement with him. Read morePublished on May 21 2004 by torrid_wind™

The film was a good portrait of Richard M Nixon. Nixon was paranoid and portrayed as a MacBeth like-figure, minus a prodding wife. Read morePublished on March 10 2004 by Nicholas Walters
