There is a brief homosexual flirtation between J. Edgar Hoover and a young male waiter that consists of both of them biting opposite ends of a cracker simultaneously. The scene is played for comic relief. Later in the film, Hoover is described as a “fairy.”
Nixon states that Dwight Eisenhower, JFK, and Martin Luther King, Jr. had mistresses.
Nixon says that the Kennedys “screw everything that moves.”
(In a deleted scene, a man remarks on the size of a woman’s “t*ts.”)

When they Look at You
When they look at you, they want to be you.
When they look at me, they find themselves.

At the end of the film Nixon, Anthony Hopkins looks at the portrait of Kennedy in the White House and can’t help feeling. Since Yu is born, what is bright? In the 1960 election, the experienced old politician and the Republican vice president for eight years lost to Senator Kennedy in front of the TV screen. In the 1968 election, if Robert Kennedy had not been assassinated during the election, he could not have been successfully elected. In the film, Nixon hated Kennedy, the three Kennedy brothers and even the whole elite from the upper class as soon as he had the opportunity. He thought that people hated him largely because he was born poor and had a brilliant career.

Although Oliver Stone wrote American 20th century history with conspiracy theory, continued the shooting technique of the assassination of Kennedy and described Nixon’s arrogant, selfish and arbitrary political career, at the end of the film, he took Nixon’s funeral as the starting point and positively recognized the impact of Nixon’s policy on American politics and even world Politics in the last 25 years of the 20th century. After ending the Vietnam War and establishing the balance of power between China, the United States and the Soviet Union, Nixon did not get a good face at home, but he was able to follow the trend in international policy, although it was largely due to his secretary of state Kissinger. Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, five living presidents and former presidents attended Nixon’s funeral. Perhaps Nixon was the victim of the “system monster” who continued to grow and devour everything mentioned in the film, and his latecomers either knew better how to tame the monster or became a puppet. It is no wonder that the last chapter of glory and dreams is called the United States secession. Party politics is the direct reason for Nixon’s resignation.

In other words, a film like Nixon can’t be regarded as a history textbook at all. It’s at most a human fable. Real history, just as Anthony Hopkins said in the film through Nixon, has to be written by himself. However, when the supreme court asked him to hand over the world-famous 18-and-a-half minute recording, he found that no matter how he altered it, he could not hide his true thoughts, because existence itself was history. When one’s power is not restricted, he always wants to try his best to protect his power. Even in the view of later generations, even if he doesn’t do those small actions, he can be re elected. However, the abnormality and deformity of the system amplified his inner fear and finally made him “lose all his self-esteem”.
