Frost/Nixon continues its triumphal progress through the review process. Among today’s entries: Peter Travers in Rolling Stone.
After the now obligatory kudos to Frank Langella’s RN, Mr. Travers sends a shout out to the director:
[Ron] Howard does his most ingenious directing to date by using the interviews as a way to peel back the layers that create a public image. As such, Nixon has never seemed more accountable or more shockingly exposed. Frost/Nixon, one of the year’s best films, far exceeds its roots as docudrama. It cuts to the core of a toxic culture that sees politics as show business, a culture still all too recognizable as our own.
