NIXON (Theatrical Release USA 1995)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

—focuses on Nixon’s career more than on his family life—does a fair job of educating about his political career. The movie accesses Anthony Hopkins to play the part of Nixon, but the difference in facial features between the two men is so overwhelmingly different that it detracts from the movie itself. The movie needs editing to cut about 30 minutes from the length of the film as it almost scrapes bottom due to weariness over length of the movie.
