Frost/Nixon

In Screen on December 22, 2008 at 7:29 pm

I felt like I had seen this movie before, the scenes had such familiarity, but it was in fact my first viewing of Frost/Nixon, sure not to be my last.  The film revolves around the british talk show host, David Frost, who embarks on a mission to interview President Nixon after his resignation.  Set in the summer of ’77 the film covers both sides of the coin. Nixon agrees to do the 4 days of interviews in hopes of preserving his legacy. What first begins as a way to make money and gain ratings slowly becomes Frost’s desire to give the American people the truth.  Frank Langella gives the performance of his life, portraying Nixon as if he was the man himself.  The Oscars are sure to be buzzing Langella’s name.  You might find yourself getting antsy in your seat after the first half.  Clocking in at 122 minutes the movie doesnt fully grab you until the last 40.
