Dodgy DVD I, Frost/Nixon
So, finally bought a dodgy DVD from the DVD lady yesterday. I´ve decided I´m only allowed to purchase DVDs off of her if the descriptions on their back covers are blogworthy. Frost/Nixon was borderline – believe me they get better (or worse, depending on your view!) – but I really wanted to see the movie. And it improves the further down you read.

FORCED TO STEP DOWN, SINCE THEN, A NUMBER OF YEARS, HE HAS BEEN TO
REMAIN SILENT UNTIL THE SUMMER OF 1977, HIS FIRST WITH THE BRITISH
TALK SHOW HOST DAVID FROST IN AN INTERVIEW ABOUT THE WATERGATE
INCIDENT AND ONE OF HIS ROLE. FROST WAS ON NIXON´S INTERVIEW CAN BE
REGARDED AS A CAT AND MOUSE ZHIDOU, AND THE INTERVIEW WILL APPEAR
