A fictionalized former President Richard M. Nixon offers a solitary, stream-of-consciousness reflection on his life and political career - and the "true" reasons for the Watergate scandal and his resignation.
May is waiting for her boyfriend in a run-down American motel, when an old flame turns up and threatens to undermine her efforts and drag her back into the life that she was running away from. The situation soon turns complicated.

A parody and satire of the U.S. political scene of the time, HealtH is set at a health food convention at a Florida luxury hotel, where a powerful political organization is deciding on a new president.
O.C. and Stiggs aren't your average unhappy teenagers. They not only despise their suburban surroundings, they plot against it. They seek revenge against the middle class Schwab family, who embody all they detest: middle class.
Perhaps it shows my ignorance but I like movies that tell a story with some kind of point and a credible story line. This picture had several great ideas but they were so poorly strung together that the movie did nothing but get more and more annoying. The characters were unbelievable, their actions made no sense and they reacted in bizarre ways. Some examples... Two drunken sergeants playing hide and seek in the rain, a soldier claiming to be queer and the other soldiers not believing him, one soldier stabbed by another and the onlookers too busy talking to get help for an exceedingly long time.
I would most definately not recommend this film. Except to film makers as an example of how NOT to tell a story.
