With Anthony Hopkins, Joan Allen, Ed Harris, Bob Hoskins, E.G. Marshall, David Paymer, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Sorvino, James Woods. Oliver Stone’s complex, multi-faceted portrait of Richard Nixon is among his finest achievements, capturing the deep contradictions and pathos behind one of the most fascinating and despised figures in recent American history. Anthony Hopkins’s richly nuanced performance goes much deeper than mere impersonation, and Stone creates a kaleidoscopic view that moves freely through time, clearly inspired more inspired by Citizen Kane than the standard biopic.
