Never have I been so captivated by a series of interviews like the ones portrayed in Frost/Nixon. If you are worried that you do not know any of the details surrounding Nixon and the Watergate scandals, don’t fret for the movie does a great job at briefly explicating the controversy.  However, though it was a great film, I cannot see myself watching it again with the same amount of fervent intrigue as the first time. It did what it set out to do very well, but, sadly, it lacks rewatchability.

Verdict: Rent It

    Good call, though I would add a shout out towards Sheen’s performance throughout the film.
