Reviews for this film from our members:
Marco Albanese @ Stanze di Cinema [Italian]
Excerpt: Film di sovrana inutilità, senza spessore e per di più intimamente conservatore e reazionario, che vorrebbe raccontare l’omicidio di John Kennedy attraverso i volti e le parole di un gruppo di persone che si trovavano a Dallas quella mattina di novembre del 1963.
Edwin Arnaudin @ Ashvegas
Excerpt: The abrupt nature means barely getting to know what makes this large cast of characters tick and suggests a 90-minute film yearning to be at least a half hour more developed.
Laura Clifford @ Parkland
Excerpt: Landesman’s film isn’t about the Kennedy assassination so much as it is about the rippling effect it had on the ordinary people who dealt with its aftermath.
Billy Donnelly @ This Is Infamous
Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
Excerpt: Landesman’s point is not to connect dots, as they have already been linked by history. He leaves it to us to find meaning in the connections…
Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
Excerpt: Pretentious and unproductive, it’s a stylized postscript revealing no new insights or relevant information, nothing that historians and conspiracy theorists have not already rehashed.
Travis Hopson @ Examiner.com
Excerpt: Parkland works when focusing on the little things, making us feel like true witnesses to history rather than judging it through the benefit of hindsight.
[New – 11/21] | MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
Excerpt: This poignant and painful ensemble drama about the lesser-known figures caught up in the JFK assassination reminds us that history happens to regular people, too.
Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
Excerpt: This ensemble docudrama is as episodic and overcrowded as it is rapidly paced and always absorbing without a moment to waste.
Stephen Silver @ EntertainmentTell
Excerpt: Takes one of the most fascinating days in history and makes it deathly boring Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
Excerpt: Compulsively watchable [although it] comes across as a little tacky, and some will even see it, fairly or not, as exploitative.
Bill Weber @ Slant
Excerpt: This commemorative docudrama’s overt politics are minimal, aside from defaulting to the myth of John F. Kennedy as a martyr for…something.
