    Great subject never apaetpriporly done on film before (does anyone remember The F.B.I. Story with James Stewart and Vera Miles?) and timely too as harbinger of historical things to come. Not surprised that the producers of Frost/Nixon would gravitate toward such material. Eastwood is major; DiCaprio will always get an A for ambition from me. The man wants to act. Maybe he's miscast but he never phones it in. I think he would be a good theater actor. DiCaprio doing O'Neill or Albee or trying a great new contemporary playwright would be interesting.Regardless of reviews I'll be seeing this the first weekend.
