The Assassination of Richard Nixon - Director's Commentary

Posted on: January 9, 2005 | Views: 17 | Comment

Directors commentary: Sam (Sean Penn) visits the Black Panthers.

Based on the true events surrounding Sam Byck (Sean Penn)--a disgruntled salesman who loses his job, his family and a chance at fulfilling the American Dream -- this film outlines the genesis of a broken man's mania. Byck's resentment and madness focuses in on the government, specifically President Nixon. Byck's obsessive plans to hijack an airliner to smash into the White House will resonate with today's audiences perhaps more than if it were made back in the 1970s when it actually happened.
