Eye for Film

Penny Lane's new documentary does something quite different by presenting a portrait of the president as his friends and aides saw him. It's a fascinating watch.

A capably done account of a presidential career that was wrecked by a crime that was unnecessary.

The result is maudlin beyond belief, especially Nixon's farewell to the aides he's in the process of firing, but other moments simply register as shockingly out of touch.

What proves most fascinating is that the three White House cinematographers appear to have been as deluded as their boss.

We get to see film of daughter Tricia's wedding (her father is a surprisingly agile ballroom dancer) and other oddities.

As fascinating as this peek into daily life at the Nixon White House is, the real power of Our Nixon is its poignant insight into how the impeachable situation unfolded within the president's inner circle.

Often plays like a mortifying companion to the Nixon-period sitcom "The Wonder Years."

There has never been an uninteresting angle on Richard Nixon - the man was too twisted - but Penny Lane's documentary sees him from several especially compelling new vantages.

Mundane movies of events like the president's daughter's wedding and his groundbreaking trip to China are juxtaposed with Nixon's rants about his enemies and the "homosexuals" he believed were leading the US into decline.

It's an exploration of the banality of evil that constantly puts banality first, but this is a relatively narrow experimental film designed to supplement rather than replace more thorough histories.

The results are akin to seeing the Nixon presidency through the eyes of his top aides; it's as much a portrait of innocence lost as a behind-closed-doors exposť.

Our Nixon provides an intriguing reverse-angle view of Nixon's time in office by presenting him both as a larger-than-life figure of Shakespearean contradictions, and as a supremely weird boss.

In its refusal to cram a point of view or crucify an easy target,'Our Nixon' is a variation from the tired current non-fiction format.

The real takeaway here is a tone of dawning tragedy, sourness sneaking into even the most innocuous of visual records.
