A New York University professor returns from a rescue mission to the Amazon rainforest with the footage shot by a lost team of documentarians who were making a film about the area's local cannibal tribes.
Originally broadcast in May of 1977, this series of interviews between Sir David Frost and U.S. President Richard Nixon, delves into the various controversies of Nixon's presidency, including (most famously) the Watergate scandal. Never before, nor since, has a U.S. President been so candid on camera. This historic meeting has been adapted into an award-winning major motion picture by Ron Howard. Written by
Excellent to see especially if you lived during this period.
I was indifferent about seeing this interview mainly because I thought it was ancient history and I also felt that it would be a very biased interview against Richard Nixon. However, I ended up gaining a tremendous amount of respect for former President Nixon and in light of the shenanigans that are going on today with President Obama and Eric Holder President Nixon looks like a saint. The interview was extremely tough with no holds barred. Frost acts like a prosecutor and hammers Nixon quite unmercifully. If you lived during this time it will bring up many emotions and feelings. In the end President Nixon comes off as a very honorable man trying to do a job under tremendous pressure.
