Assassination of Richard NixonBy ElNut from London , 24 Aug 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Excellent - highly recommended. Emotive, heartfelt, desperately sad and utterly convincing, this film sees Sean Penn turn in the performance of his career.
This may have been said countless times about an actor who continues to turn in 'worthy' performances (whilst keeping a keen eye on the Oscar nominations), but in this case it really is true. The subject may be gloomy - a lonely man's descent into depression, and ultimately madness - but this drives the film's message through with incredible force. A truly amazing piece of work.
Not to be missed.

The Assination of Rochard NixonBy a customer from Devon , 23 Apr 2009This film is slow and I felt like doing other things. I liked the concept of the true events but found it boring to watch in this film.
The Assassination of Richard NixonBy joaska (9 reviews) from Stourbridge , 18 Mar 2009Five stars for Sean Penn, a great actor!!!
'The Assasination...' is a fabulous piece of work.
good acting lack of a plot!By a customer from London , 11 Feb 2009The acting is very convincing, however there isn't enough in the plot to keep you interested so I would not recommend seeing this film!
BTBy a customer from WAKEFIELD , 26 Jan 2009Super performance from Sean Penn, but the film was spoilt by the
unnecessary loud background music towards the end of the film.
Still a very good film
