“Nixon, The Man, The Myth”: A Review of the Oliver Stone Movie
[ send me this essay ]
A 6 page review of the Oliver Stone movie starring Anthony Hopkins, Joan Allen, Powers Boothe, James Woods and J.T. Walsh. The reviewer contends that, as unfortunately the case in this movie, Nixon is most often remembered for his weaknesses more so than for his accomplishments. Never-the-less, while it is the more questionable aspects of Nixon’s life which Stone chooses to capitalize upon, in doing so he has brought to life many other aspects of Richard Nixon which too many of us have forgotten. In all, in fact, Oliver Stone’s film is an excellent introduction to a very complex man. While Stone emphasizes some of Nixon’s more sordid moments in politics, he provides enough biographical detail to make his movie not only interesting but useful. Bibliography lists 3 sources.
