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

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.

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