Behold, citizens of the U.S.A…for it’s East Side Dave’s Top 5 Presidential Movies!   Enjoy!

 

5.) Primary Colors

Starring John Travolta and Emma Thompson, this “fictional” movie satirizes the 1992 Bill Clinton campaign and is highly interesting.

 

 

4.) JFK

An Oliver Stone-directed, conspiracy masterpiece…this dark look into what happened in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963 is a truly captivating (and scary) film.

 

 

3.) Path To War

John Frankenheimer (The Manchurian Candidate) directs a star-studded cast about Lyndon B. Johnson and the escalation of the Vietnam War in this fascinating picture.

 

2.) Nixon

The second Oliver Stone movie to appear on this list…this incredible biopic saw the brilliant Anthony Hopkins receive a Best Actor Oscar nom for his amazing performance as Richard Nixon.

 

1.) Lincoln

Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day-Lewis combine forces to create possibly the greatest Presidential film of all time.
