‘Watergate’ looks to Nixon’s past, with an eye on the present

One misguided decision can partially offset a whole lot of good ones, and so it is with “Watergate,” a comprehensive trip into the way-back machine, which makes the serious misstep of dramatically reenacting the Nixon tapes. Receiving a theatrical run in advance of a three-night stand on History channel, it’s still worthwhile as a dense look at America’s past — and in terms of checking executive actions, perhaps a preview of its future.
