For three years after being forced from office, 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 harboured doubts about their boss's ability to hold his own. But as the cameras rolled, a charged battle of wits resulted.

The animations are elementary, the narration is flat, and some of the material repeats or does not progress as it should. That said, it's got a lot of good content that should really, really make you think about things.Most notably to me is the story of Tom Ogle. By most accounts I can find, he successfully converted a 4,000 car to a 100 mpg machine in the late 70s. By using vapor instead of a carburator, he was able to maximize efficiency. Why are cars 40 years later still getting 1/3 of that mileage or less? Well, Ogle died at the age of 24, allegedly by suicide. Given the amount of money involved, and given the history of oil and car companies buying and burying other patents that would have changed the world, that's a big allegedly. Truly, this would have been one of the most remarkable bits of science in the last 50 years (or maybe not so much if we had accepted it 40 years ago when we should have, and not grown accustomed to driving 20 mph pieces of shit). Also some interesting economic stuff about supply and demand. The supply is largely controlled by the oil companies, so when they want to jack prices, they can cut supply and raise the prices for the record profits we've been seeing. All in all, a lousy documentary production-wise, but good enough to really piss you off and get you thinking.

Peter L (it) wrote: Incredibly underrated film, and in many ways it is way ahead of it's time. John Huston gives us a film so moving, and deceptively powerful, that we can barely stand it. Elizabeth Taylor is great, and Brando gives one of the best (and again terribly underrated) performances of his career. There is a point when he breaks down in the middle of a lecture, almost completely losing it infront of his class. It is one of the greatest moments of his acting career. Powerful stuff here. Powerful powerful stuff.
