Here’s a great idea for a triple feature. Watch this after seeing “All the President’s Men” and The Hoax. What incredible contrasts in journalism: investigative, deceptive, and entertaining. And they all have to do with Nixon and his fall from the highest office in the nation.
This one fully deserved its five Academy Award nominations. Frank Langella was perfectly believable as Tricky Dick. I remember watching David Frost when I was a teen and unfortunately actor Michael Sheen seemed like Tony Blair playing Frost, who was much more witty, crafty and intelligent in real life. The DVD has excerpts from the real interview as a bonus feature. Kudos to Director Ron Howard. This film is well worth watching.
