    Our Nixon is mainly a collage of images and sounds that tell a familiar story in an entirely new and mesmerizing way.

    Accompanied by interviews as well as audio from the secret tapes Nixon recorded in the White House, it’s a truly absorbing look at the 37th president and the devoted insiders who surrounded him--and in several instances went to jail in his service.

    This highly personal view of the Nixon years is, for obvious reasons, a sad and wrenching one--a film that is nonetheless filled with spirit, humor and a beautiful sense of irony.

    The result is a blend that’s sometimes funny, occasionally poignant and fitfully horrifying. There are flashes of a Nixon rarely glimpsed or perhaps even suspected.

    The retrieved home movie footage creates a lambent prism through which the '70s seem like a simpler time. It also makes Our Nixon a uniquely dynamic time capsule.
