3.0 out of 5 stars Based on a True Story, 6 Oct. 2007
This review is from: Assassination of Richard Nixon [DVD] [2005] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This movie is based on a true story, which shows us a devastating and pathetic picture of a man who has lost everything that means anything to him. And anything he seems to try cannot get it back for him. He is estranged from his brother, and could not even keep a job with him. He is separated from his wife and kids whom he still loves, but they go on with their lives without him.

Of course this character Sam, played by Sean Penn, is not able to deal with the cards life dealt him. He starts to spiral out of control and seems to focus all his rage on President Nixon, who he plans to assassinate. Even with all this, we do not see Sam as a bad man. Just a man who is confused and caught up in a world he does not understand and is not able to control.

Sean Penn does a wonderful job of acting in this film. This film was perfect for when it was released and perhaps we are reaching that type of climate in the USA again. He should have won an Academy Award for this part. Worth seeing for Mr. Penn's acting alone.
