Patton | Chicago Reader

Patton

Richard M. Nixon's favorite movie, which proves he was blind to ambiguity as well as a few other things. Far from being a brute celebration of the military mystique, Franklin Schaffner's 1970 film is concerned with the intersection of history and the individual—with those times when personality becomes history. And Patton's personality—conveyed with pointed theatrical flair by George C. Scott—is registered in rich tones of grandeur and megalomania, genius and petty sadism. With Karl Malden, Michael Bates, and Stephen Young.
