New Movie Releases of The Week: Our Nixon, Closed Circuit, One Direction: This Is Us

Friday, August 30, 2013

This week’s big movie releases include the all-archival documentary "Our Nixon," which examines the Nixon presidency through the use of home movies filmed by Nixon aides. Also hitting the box office is “Closed Circuit,” the British crime thriller and “One Direction: This Is Us,” an intimate, all access look at the boy band One Direction and their life on the road during their world tour.

As usual, the Movie Date team, Rafer Guzman and Kristen Meinzer, weigh in with their thoughts. In addition to co-hosting the Movie Date podcast, Rafer is film critic for Newdsay and Kristen is culture producer for The Takeaway.

Re: "Our Nixon"
It was noted the home movies were confiscated by the F.B.I. Now they are the basis of the documentary.
My question is how does one get access to someone else's home movies. Were they returned to the Nixon family?
Are they in public domain? Julie Nixon's wedding? Who owns these tapes?
