Movie Reviews By Bil Antoniou

Nixon

BB.5

(out of 5)


Oliver Stone, who previously directed the marvelous JFK, fails to invest this biography of president Richard Nixon’s troubled political career with the same amount of paranoid energy and enthusiasm. This dry, talky film goes listlessly from one meeting to another until finally climaxing with the Watergate scandal and then regressing back to its lazy pace. Acting is a plus, with  a marvel in a lead role, plus an intense  (igniting a great career in the 1990s with her first Academy Award nomination) keeping up with him at every punch as depressed wife Pat. Great supporting roles too, but very little of this film is as interesting as many other films and books dealing with the same period in American history.
