Parkland (2013)
« on: November 22, 2014, 08:48:22 pm »

Parkland takes place after President Kennedy has been assassinated. The name refers to the Hospital where he was rushed to and later the same for Lee Harvey Oslwald. I wanted this movie to be more than what it eventually became. It's a serviceable film. It's just not on the same level of JFK because it's not trying to be. There isn't really a main character that we are meant to follow, but 3 different stories are being told at once, following the events of the Oswald family, Abraham Zapruder and those that make up the surgical team of Parkland. It's a bit slow by comparison to JFK and may not appeal to everyone, especially if they are wanting the more sensational conspiracy theories that come with the subject matter. Not sure how accurate this movie is, but there were some things that just didn't ring true as I had never heard about them until watching the movie. Worth a Rent and nothing more.

On a related topic to this movie. It was by pure coincidence that I picked up Parkland from the Library today of all days. I had been on the Hold List for over two months and wouldn't you know it, the movie arrived today, November 22, the day JFK was assassinated. I didn't even realize today was the day until maybe an hour before I put the movie on tonight. Crazy.
