Common Sense Media

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

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.

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]

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.

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.

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.

A riveting tragedy.

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.

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.

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