Nixon

 (1995)

Nixon Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Although he's one of the most chronicled public figures of the 20th century, Richard Milhous Nixon remains an enigma to many, his decisions, motives and behavior often shrouded in mystery. With the ill-fated 1972 Watergate break-in and its tragic aftermath—culminating in the President's 1974 resignation—as its focus, NIXON examines its subject's complex life, including his difficult youth in Southern California and often troubled relationship with wife Pat. We also see Nixon's incredible political life, during which he held the offices of Congressman at age 33, Senator at 37, and Vice-President at 39, before losing the Presidential election in 1960 and the California gubernatorial race in 1962, making his startling comeback six years later to win two terms as President. With the inevitability of classical tragedy, Nixon's political career finally crumbles beneath the weight of his past, his ambitions, and his blindness to events just outside his often remarkable range of vision.

For more about Nixon and the Nixon Blu-ray release, see Nixon Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Nixon Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Nixon is presented on this release with an AVC encoding that averages about 25 Mbps. Oliver Stone utilizes ever shifting film techniques within the span of the story he spins; on a technical level, Nixon shifts constantly from contemporary cameras and 35mm film to 16mm for an aged look of 1970s television, to even the jumpy black and white footage of a handcranked silent film camera. Color grading and other special effects were applied in post production, but overall, many practical effects were used to achieve the film's symbolism.

The transfer on this Blu-ray is quite impressive. Of course it is, at times, difficult to determine if what is seen on the screen is an aspect (or defect) of the transfer, or an intended effect from the director, but given the high quality of this picture, one can definitely give it the benefit of the doubt. Colors are as clear and distinct as they can be; the overall palette is by directorial choice a bit muted, with a "real" look to it. Blacks are deep and balanced, with no visible crush. The flashbulbs of cameras show clear whites without going out of range and blooming. Artifacts such as macroblocking, noise, or edge enhancement are not apparent, and flesh tones are natural and without push. The black and white shots are especially impressive, full of detail and having a sort of "stark" impact on the viewer. In all, the film has a wonderful visual variety to it, which the Blu-ray definitely brings to life.


Nixon Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Nixon offers up two audio tracks on its Blu-ray release. First off is a lossless PCM 5.1 mix, which certainly opens up the sound field when compared to the Dolby Digital 5.1 track. The chronic conundrum of whether the uncompressed sound really presents much usefulness in a dialogue heavy film is here, however. Front heavy and none too thrilling, the sound is focused mostly on conspiring conversations and some ambiance, like echoing footsteps, crowd noise, or the thrum of Air Force One.

Rear channels and the LFE don't seem to be too alive in this mix, though it is wholly understandable given the film's subject matter. Of note is that, like the various video processes used throughout the film, the sound is purposely warped or flat when the content onscreen switches to black and white segments, or older forms of film stock. Not one to give your speakers a workout, Nixon still has a decent audio presentation in its own right.
