While filming this movie, Michael Sheen was asked by Ron Howard if he could record a quick moment of dialog for Frost/Nixon. Sheen, covered in fake blood from the days filming, went to his trailer and recorded the dialog, he asked someone to take a picture of him doing it and sent it to Ron Howard, who had it framed and displayed.

The "blood" that Viktor is drinking shortly after imprisoning Sonja is quite clearly tomato juice or something similar - blood is not orange, and is opaque but not cloudy with sediment. See more »

I was hoping it would be good yet I didn't expect it to be 'this' good.
Honestly, this was 'so' well paced. Actually got me anxious, and thats a bit of a rarity. And in a good way.
First off the story was very interesting from start to finish and the script very well crafted. All of the elements... Love, machismo, heroic, underdog, special abilities, honor, suspense, scandal, comradeship, good vs bad just so many elements. However the difference with this film is they were all intertwined so well. Not the usual 'chemistry cocktail' roll of the dice.
The cinematic hat trick... acting, directing and the written story itself all melted like cheese on a hot Philly steak.
I understand the "Category" this film falls near however, over all very well crafted. Some other "Film Makers" should take a few lessons.
I hope there's another.
