It's all right, not sure of how accurate it is. Lot of work i'm sure went into producing it.
Parts may have been overstated by a liberal Hollywood producer. I pretty much took it as a lot of fiction over stating what the producer imagine or in some instances wanted to believe the way it was. But believe me a fair amount of the movie was real and Nixon needed to resign. I never really liked him and even though I was out of college and starting a career at the time and I did not realize how big a role he played in the Vietnam war. That really bothers me.

Here again Stone shows his almost total insensitivity to truth and historical accuracy. I had no more liking for Nixon than him, but I refuse to accept this cartoonish figure as the real Nixon. The tell-tale signs of a hatchet job: the lighting goes dark, the camera starts hunting out weird angles, and the actors start twitching and snarling (the Texas oilman's house, the Hoover scenes, the CIA director's office).

It is a 1995 American biographical film directed by Oliver Stone and tells the story of the political and personal life of former US President Richard Nixon, played by Anthony Hopkins.
Some criticized Stone's depiction of Nixon's private life, that of his childhood, and his part in planning the assassination of Fidel Castro.
Responding to the critics, Stone responded that the film was "neither malicious nor defamatory", and that it was an attempt to gain "a fuller understanding of the life and career of Richard Nixon — the good and the bad, the triumphs and the tragedies, and the legacy he left his nation and the world."
I think that Stone has accomplished what he said about the film.
