  1. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Secret Honor

    So this is what Presidential meltdowns were like before they had Twitter accounts. It's also what Altman, a director who thrived on group dynamics, could do with one actor in one room. Philip Baker Hall stuns, and once it gets going, it's an electric word-vomit through 20th century politics. Altman is the cranky documenter the US deserves because he understood that to succeed here you have to be part bullshit artist.

  2. James Mackin's rating of the film Secret Honor

    A fascinating showcase of one man's paranoid, senile rambles. Maybe the best thing Philip Baker Hall has done.

  3. Ethan's rating of the film Secret Honor

    Philip Baker Hall gives the best performance of Richard Nixon ever committed to the screen. Altman had a special way of making the most uninteresting things into the most interesting things.

  4. Illusion Travels By Streetcar's rating of the film Secret Honor

    "We're talking Robert Altman tonight." "After Popeye." http://illusionpodcast.blogspot.com/2015/01/episode-43-stage-adaptations-of-robert.html

  5. Henry_Swanson's rating of the film Secret Honor

    Bravura one-man show from Philip Baker Hall that leaves you short on breath watching him frantically pace around the room & bare Nixon's soul into a tape recorder.

  6. chasemiddaugh's rating of the film Secret Honor

    Philip Baker Hall at his best in this unique view of one of America's most fascinating public figures.

  7. Joe Zaydon's rating of the film Secret Honor

    A brave, if somewhat melodramatic, portrayal of Nixon in the form of a rambling, cursing 90 minute monologue. Philip Baker Hall is a powerhouse.

  8. Jared Bynum's rating of the film Secret Honor

    Richard Nixon talks to Richard Nixon, Richard Nixon, Richard Nixon and Richard Nixon. Enjoy.

  9. Midnight Cowboy's rating of the film Secret Honor

    Just look what can you do with a camera, an actor, a room and a Whisky... One of the most smashing and effective movies I`ve ever seen in my life. PBH`s performance is so disturbing and restless, definitely the best of his career. And I must not forget Altman`s precise directing... I`m speechless!
