Altman's take on a fascinating one-man show, with Philip Baker Hall staggeringly good as the disgraced Richard Milhous Nixon.

We begin to understand [Nixon] -- or at least this representation of him -- in a human way that press coverage or television speeches could never capture.

One of the funniest, most unsettling, most imaginative and most surprisingly affecting movies of its very odd kind I've ever seen.

The dramatic material, overheated to begin with, is hyped up by hysterical acting and further exaggerated by a busy mise-en-scene based on meaningless camera movements and space-destroying zooms.
