Storyline

From 1971 to 1973, Richard Nixon secretly recorded his private conversations in the White House. This revealing film chronicles the content of those tapes, which include Nixon's conversations on the war in Vietnam, the Pentagon Papers leak, his Supreme Court appointments, and more--while also exposing many of the 'blunt and candid' statements made by the President about women, people of color, Jews, and the media.

Trivia

Idiosyncratic goof: During a film montage previewing Nixon's trip to China in 1972, Air Force One is depicted as a VC-25, a variation of the Boeing 747-200B. The 747-200B airframe was not adopted for usage by the President until 1990. See more »

I didn't think I'd enjoy this one... but I was instantly glued!
13 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

This documentary, to me, was a good as any episode of House of Cards, and it gives a very interesting view of the office of the presidency. The reality that this movie makes plain, is 100 times worse than just Watergate. (Perhaps I still hold too much optimism in our government?) However, Nixon's own phone recordings and comments show the most unethical and corrupt president I could have possibly imagined until now. I challenge anyone to watch this documentary thoroughly and prove otherwise.

I am positive, further back through the years, other presidents have performed worse actions. But, the fact that all this was taped is what makes this extremely mind-blowing. I cannot for the life of me, wonder why Nixon would have been stupid enough to record all of these conversations. He left his footprints all over the numerous crime scenes. I didn't think I'd really enjoy this one, but I was instantly glued!
