    Despite Sean Penn's ability to comes across as the ultimate Soft-cock this comes across as Taxi Driver light

  14. Kamran's rating of the film The Assassination of Richard Nixon

  15. Lorna Singh's rating of the film The Assassination of Richard Nixon

    Only 95 minutes long,yet the audience gets drawn into this complex story and character study. Another brilliant turn from Sean Penn,aided by writing that lets him show his range. In fact,the entire cast is excellent.

  16. Mugino's rating of the film The Assassination of Richard Nixon

    There's a knowing "predictability" to this -- the title encapsulating the exact nature of the plot and its obvious failure, given what we know about history. And so, this is not so much about the story as it is a character study of a man whose failure and obscurity in life continues even in death. Sean Penn gives a candid, brave performance as the pathetic Sam Byck. Michael Wincott is amazing in a supporting role.

  17. Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film The Assassination of Richard Nixon

    No one hits rock bottom like Sean Penn, in a contained but powerful performance of a deeply disturbed man in a hopeless crusade to shake the foundations of the ever indifferent government. Intense, grief and shocking hidden gem in the same vein of the anti-hero and suicidal glory tale epitomized in classics like Scorsese's Taxi driver or Peckinpah's The wild bunch.
