3 comments on “Frost/Nixon

  1. I did like the performances in this film, particularly Michael Sheen. I enjoyed the film having not seen the original interviews when they were first broadcast.

  2. I respectfully disagree. I did not find this film overly interesting and I felt like the attempts to humanize Nixon to be too on-the-nose and blatant. The only good scenes were the actual interview scenes, and if that’s the case why not just watch the actual tapes? I thought that Howard really dropped the ball here.

  3. I know little of Nixon but his reputation – and it is interesting to see how the film plays with that reputation and the historical background the American target audience will surely know in much detail. I would agree with both icanthecool and Dan in that they way it has been put together is not overly interesting, but that the acting is bordering on fabulous. Michael Sheen is able to create amazing characters, and his acting makes it irrelevant whether he looks like them or not.
