on Frost/Nixon

the first and greatest sin of the deception of television is that it simplifies; it diminishes great, complex ideas, trenches of time; whole careers become reduced to a single snapshot......."that reductive power of the close-up" - Frost Nixon - What a movie!

The primary reason, I believe, we cherish cinema about great journalism is because we don't see enough of it around in the inept, tabloid-worshipping media all around us. - Raja Sen, Rediff
