Common Sense Media

Dense psychodrama of much-disliked U.S. president.

City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul

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

Lessons of Darkness

The filmmaker's deftness at evoking theme and sentiment through editorial montages within individual dramatic scenes reaches an apotheosis here.

7M Pictures

It's clear that Stone hates Nixon with a capital H.

Groucho Reviews

A convincing blend of Shakespearean tragedy and Citizen Kane, Nixon paints the thirty-seventh President of the United States as a uniquely American tragic hero...[Blu-Ray]

Christopher Null

Some of Nixon's scenes are standouts, but it's Hopkins' crazy rants that you won't forget.

A staggering work of empathy for Stone.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

As wayward and self-regarding as its subject, the film long overstays its welcome.

Chuck O'Leary
Fantastica Daily

The combination of Oliver Stone and Richard Nixon, two paranoids from opposite ends of the political spectrum, is a match made in cinematic heaven.

| Original Score: 10/10

Austin Chronicle

For all its unwieldy temporal scope and narrowness of perspective, Nixon is an amazingly graceful beast, flawed yet invigorating, packed with enough material that will fascinate and irk moviegoers of all stripes for quite a time to come.

Michael Dequina

A riveting tragedy.

Nick Davis
Nick's Flick Picks

A hulking tyrannosaur of a movie, lusty and fierce, crashing around for all the world to see, majestic in its size and scope though it's also an instant anachronism.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

What it finally adds up to is a huge mixed bag of waxworks and daring, a film that is furiously ambitious even when it goes flat, and startling even when it settles for eerie, movie-of-the-week mimicry.

Full Review Source: New York Times | Original Score: 3.5/5

Moira Sullivan

The film could have worked. There was Hopkins and Allen to make it work. But maybe the curse of Nixon had a whammy effect.

Robert Roten
Laramie Movie Scope

The maverick director has outdone himself with a visually stunning, sweeping epic of the life of one of this country's most enigmatic political figures.

Hopkins doesn't try to look like or resemble Nixon, but he does wind up embodying him.

Rob Vaux
Flipside Movie Emporium

Hopkin's strangely effective imitation conveys a real sense of tragedy to this most infamous U.S. President.

| Original Score: 3/5

Kevin N. Laforest
Montreal Film Journal

Stone meshes together flashbacks, newsreels, black&white and color as well as different types of film, therefore creating a very complex piece. He turns Nixon's life into a real modern tragedy.
