Critics Consensus: Much like its subject's time in office, Nixon might have ended sooner -- but what remains is an engrossing, well-acted look at the rise and fall of a fascinating political figure.

As wayward and self-regarding as its subject, the film long overstays its welcome.

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

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the dialogue in the Nixon White House is a veritable profanity-gate, with R-rated usage of "f--k," "s--t," and "c--t", and numerous racial epithets (this is historically accurate, as the tapes revealed). Vintage newsreels and broadcast-TV footage show glimpses of corpses, explosions, and war atrocities in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Chile. There is talk of the sexual lives of leading figures such as Martin Luther King, Henry Kissinger, and the Kennedys. Meanwhile FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, heavily hinted as a homosexual, flirts with a waiter. This is a looong movie (even longer in the "Director's Cut"), so it's not the best choice for short-attention-span viewers.
