Plot Outline:

Oliver Stone's examination of Richard Nixon - from his strict Quaker upbringing to early political stirrings and the devastating loss to John F. Kennedy.

Nixon walks like some sort of troll, his voice is bizarre, it just is stone's own perception of him visually therefore inaccurate.

Oscar Nominee Best Actor Anthony Hopkins 1/5- this might be mostly Oliver Stone's fault but Nixon is portrayed far too poorly. Even if you extremely dislike Nixon this is not accurate in anyway. He acts way to strange and seems like a...
