In Review: Frost/Nixon


Whilst I don’t claim to have much interest in politics, and my knowledge of US politics is very limited to say the least, I left the cinema after Frost/Nixon knowing that I had just seen a very good film.

Perhaps it is the “real life” nature of the story, based on actual events. Maybe its the appealingly kitsch 70’s setting, or even the many intelligent humourous quips scattered throughout the film. Whichever way, I would highly recommend that people go and see Frost/Nixon even if, like me, they have little interest in politics.

Will it win an Oscar, of which it has been nominated for five? If it doesn’t we’ll surely see Oscargate…
