News & Interviews for Our Nixon
Critic Reviews for Our Nixon
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.
[A] shrewdly edited collection of news footage and "home movies" taken by members of the Nixon White House staff ...
We get to see film of daughter Tricia's wedding (her father is a surprisingly agile ballroom dancer) and other oddities.
Often plays like a mortifying companion to the Nixon-period sitcom "The Wonder Years."
Audience Reviews for Our Nixon
An entertaining film with a unique (if not entirely groundbreaking) perspective on the Nixon White House and Watergate.
A rather lite but most interesting feature documentary on former American President Richard M. Nixon composed of never-before-seen home movie footage taken by his very young White House staff who were avid fans of the new medium (Super 8 home video). The video captures their Nixon through their camera lens with some rather private and intimate moments the public did not have access to ... and knowing what happened to these avid ideologues and their leader makes the doc all the more fascinating. They videotaped almost everything ... never realizing their own recordings could one day reveal what they were all up to that could come back and ruin their White House careers. H.R. Haldeman was Nixon's Chief of Staff and he helped populate his staff with young do-gooders such as Dwight Chapin and other yes-men like John Ehrlichman who all unfortunately became entangled in a little political scandal known as Watergate. The film captures their idealistic hopes and dreams but also all of their naivety ... and with a 70s vibe and a nearly perfect soundtrack featuring Tracey Ullman's 'They Don't Know About Us', I couldn't help but like this film ... a lot. Docs should educate or spark an interest ... and this one did both plus entertain. Nixon was human and he erred ... and in doing so he gave us this great documentary.
Fairly neutral documentary on the Nixon years. Somewhat more forgiving of Nixon than other projects have been.
