Frost/Nixon 
"Frost/Nixon" by Yojimbo
3/4 stars

In the wake of the Watergate scandal, Richard Nixon is tempted into a televised interview by a huge fee and the assumption of an easy ride from a British interviewer with little political experience. Frost/Nixon can best be described as a political version of Rocky 2, as strange as that sounds. The story is of a fresh faced challenger who, against all odds, takes on a world heavyweight who has little expectation of a real fight. Michael Sheen once again shows his uncanny ability to "become" the character he is portraying, this time talk show host David Frost, but his fine performance is more than matched by a superb performance by Frank Langella who brings a real humanity to "tricky Dicky". It's a story of two men who have everything to lose, Frost his career and entire personal fortune, and Nixon his credibility and historical legacy, each vying for the upper hand in a verbal battle of wits. Considering the limits to the originally stage-bound script, Frost/Nixon is extremely compelling thanks to excellent cast and anyone with an interest in politics cannot fail to enjoy a peek behind the curtain of history in the making.
