Saw Frost/Nixon last night.
Solid entertainment with Langella’s Nixon being a wonderful replacement now for my shitty Al Pacino impression – all jowly and gruff.
Great performances by all involved although it takes Michael Sheen about 15 minutes to get past the impression stages of his performance. Sam Rockwell and Oliver Platt are great but the talking heads bits, where the actors play their characters a few years after the event, are unnecessary and a bit distracting.
One of the lads asked me for an ‘outta 10’ so i’ll give it a 6. Howzat?

    Nixon has my favourite evil voice Does the actor pull it off?

  2. Adam says:

    Not perfectly but he makes the character and the voice his own. Big jowly ceann on him.
