Ron Howard United Kingdom, 2008

VincentVendetta's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

It cultivates the fantasy that American democracy shall be saved by network entertainers, by the Colberts, Stewarts, and Oliviers of the world - and we all know ten years later how well that turned out! Frost/Nixon isn't cinema, it is television through and through, reducing politics to a simple game of communication, carelessly doing the exact same mistakes of its protagonist. Ron is just looking for a good show.
