Movie Info

Take a comprehensive look at the Watergate scandal and explore the controversial career of the only United States president ever to resign from office as former President Richard M. Nixon sits down with probing journalist David Frost for an illuminating series of live, unscripted interviews. His fall from power was nothing short of spectacular, yet still Nixon remains one of the most fascinating and complex political figures of the entire 20th Century. In addition to serving as Nixon's first public appearance since his high profile resignation, these interviews offer candid insight into the mind of the man who stood at the center of American during a particularly turbulent era in our nation's history. Though Nixon's second term in office was cut short following the 1972 break-in at Democratic Party headquarters in Washington, D.C., journalist Frost attempts to get to the bottom of the Watergate scandal by engaging the former Commander in Chief in a candid and penetrating series of interviews.

All Critics (2)

La cinta es un brillante tour de force donde, a pesar de no haber un gramo de acción, la tensión se respira en cada escena; y es que el argumento, inspirado en la entrevista de David Frost a Richard Nixon es tan estresante como la vida misma.

Audience Reviews for David Frost Interviews Richard Nixon (Frost/Nixon: The Complete Interviews) (Frost Nixon: Watergate)

½

David Frost's interview of Richard Nixon is one of the most important interviews ever conducted due to the fact that Frost and Nixon engaged in a battle that would make Nixon admit to his wrongdoings while in office over Watergate. The conversation is enthralling and engaging. Little by little, you see Richard Nixon come out of his shell, and become more uncomfortable when the subject diverts to Watergate. But before that, Frost interview the former President on a variety of subjects. Everything presented here is truly compelling, and is a must watch for those interested in the history of what happened. Near the end of the interview, you see Richard Nixon broken down and defeated as he admits to his abuse of power while in office and how he comes to regret what he has done. This is not meant to take Nixon into Pity as it is clear that he was a crook, and a liar, and a deceiver of the worst kind. This was designed to give the American people an apology, something that Nixon hadn't previously done. For history purposes, this is quite the experience to watch. The interview is famous and it would be the basis for the film Frost/Nixon, which was how they worked on making this interview. The result is impressive and it is a worthwhile viewing, but is mostly for those interested in the subject. If you're curious, give it a watch, it's worth it and it's quite the subject when you see Nixon break down and become a shell of his former self.
