Summer blockbuster advance notice: Nixonland by Rick Perlstein

I love the blunt instruction with the opening and closing images. From the discord of overstimulated youth to a quiet beach stroll, by Nixon's faithful hand. Take his hand, and walk into the light.

But, sometimes, I want to run screaming with righteous anger into the darkness with a chainsaw.
