JFK (1991)
Directed by Oliver Stone
A half-century has passed since the execution in Dallas of America's best-looking president. Stone's epic takes this kind of tone: grand, manic, furious, and crowd-pleasing in the extreme, three hours packed with flashing clips and conspiracies so gross you get greasy just watching. Kevin Costner is New Orleans DA Jim Garrison, neglecting wife and innumerable children as he and his colleagues dredge the innumerable lies that make up our government. Ahem. JFK pissed off a lot of people, which is good, and bumped up the date when materials connected to the assassination will be released to the public, which is better. Elina Mishuris (Opens Nov 8 at AMC Empire)
