The cinema of Robert Altman is infinitely sly, consolidating all of his political and social concerns into a series of ensemble pieces, full of corrosive humor and eccentric characters. His films feel like living organisms that seem to evolve with each viewing. A longtime iconoclast, Altman has never catered to the commercial film industry. Here, on six Director Approved editions, he bypasses the commercial media once again, addressing laserdisc audiences directly on the subjects that drive his work.

"Looks and sounds better here than it did in theaters ... The presentation is worthy of the established classic this film deserves to be." -Sol Siegel, Video

Philip Baker Hall gives a stunning performance as a tortured and deceitful Richard Nixon telling his own story, with a loaded pistol and a bottle of liquor by his side. Special supplements include audio commentary by director Robert Altman (Tanner '88, The Player) and screenwriter Donald Freed, as well as footage of four famous Nixon speeches (including "Checkers"!).
