Frost/Nixon

 (2008)

Frost/Nixon Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

For three years after being forced from office as President of the United States of America, Nixon remained silent. But in summer 1977, the steely, cunning former commander-in-chief agreed to sit for one all-inclusive interview to confront the questions of his time in office and the Watergate scandal that ended his presidency. Nixon surprised everyone in selecting Frost as his televised confessor, intending to easily outfox the breezy British showman and secure a place in the hearts and minds of Americans. Likewise, Frost's team harbored doubts about their boss' ability to hold his own. But as cameras rolled, a charged battle of wits resulted. Would Nixon evade questions of his role in one of the nation's greatest disgraces? Or would Frost confound critics and bravely demand accountability from the man who'd built a career out of stonewalling? Over the course of their encounter, each man would reveal his own insecurities, ego and reserves of dignity -- ultimately setting aside posturing in a stunning display of unvarnished truth.

For more about Frost/Nixon and the Frost/Nixon Blu-ray release, see Frost/Nixon Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Frost/Nixon Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Bathed in period details and filmed in a style reminiscent of the films of the late seventies, Frost/Nixon arrives on Blu-ray in a form that accurately recreates the film's theatrical exhibition. Universal has, unsurprisingly, done the consistent thing and delivered the film via a relatively high bitrate VC-1 encode. The results are pleasing and entirely consistent to the intentions of Ron Howard and cinematographer Salvatore Totino.

Much of the actual interview featured in Frost/Nixon is shrouded in deep black shadowy hues. As such, this Blu-ray encode does a fine job of presenting satisfyingly deep black levels and robust contrast. I was pleased with the level of detail on display as well; Nixon's craggy face bore the signs of years of doubt and insecurity, while Frost's youthful appearance stood as a stark contrast. Colors are vibrant and deeply saturated throughout the presentation. As one would hope, compression issues and digital artifacts aren't ever an issue. Frost/Nixon isn't exactly the kind of picture that was destined to challenge Blade Runner in the impressiveness department, but it sure looks good! Recommended!


Frost/Nixon Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Here's an odd proposition: take a movie about a television interview from the 1970s, make the film a series of long and drawn out conversations and exchanges, score the film with a minimalist series of compositional sketches and then deliver it on Blu-ray in crystalline 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. Now, I'm not saying that lossless audio is overkill; it never is and always delivers a soundtrack that is superior to its lossy counterpart. However, there's just not much more than 122 minutes worth of in-depth and perfectly captured conversation presented on this Blu-ray disc.

In spite of the lack of any kind of traditional action-themed sound design, Frost/Nixon succeeds in being a perfectly realized audio experience. The film's abundance of dialogue is presented as flawlessly as possible; every grumble and terse statement from Nixon is rendered with impeccable aural resolution. The film's score is rooted in the front soundstage with the occasional flourish finding its way into the surround channels. Dialogue moves around the front soundstage nicely and is never rooted primarily in the center channel. What more could one really ask for? Recommended!
