Something for Thursday

From John Williams’s score to Nixon: “The 1960s: The Turbulent Years”.

I’ve been remembering Oliver Stone’s fascinating reinterpretation of history in this movie ever since I heard of Henry Kissinger’s death. I wrote about the film years ago, and honestly I wouldn’t change a word of that. I consider Nixon a great film about a time when our country was led by terrible people.

As for Mr. Kissinger, well…my mother would not appreciate being outlived by him.
