Dad and I saw Frost/Nixon tonight. Pure gold. We talked about what an odd fellow Nixon was, we talked about his policies and my dad’s memory of the trials and rallies in the mid-70’s. We talked how mistrust is still felt towards the government by the American people…

Perhaps Frost/Nixon speaks to our generation–we’ve had politicians sell senate seats, we’ve had limitless wiretapping, and hell, we have George W. Bush–but what have we done about it? The writing in the film was not only true to the play, but it also took on new life in the form of one of Ron Howard’s absolute best films. The editing! The cinematography! The casting! The acting was top notch–watch out Heath! It was a fantastic movie. I highly recommend you take me to go see it again.
