Film Review  December 27, 1991, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...He makes heartfelt, heart stirring, heart pumping treatises which, if they don't always seem to have pointed objectives, do always seem to have bottom lines. So, too, with JFK..."

Columns  November 22, 2013, by Michael Ventura

Bubba Ho-Tep
Elvis Presley and JFK (played brilliantly by Campbell and Davis) fight a soul-sucking mummy in this twisted sci-fi horror film loaded with generous chunks of cheese.

Film Review  October 24, 2003, by Marrit Ingman
"...Elvis (Campbell) is cooling his blue suede heels here (he’s afflicted with a penile growth). So is JFK (Davis), who’s been alive and kicking since 1963, only he’s black (the CIA dyed him, you see), and no one believes he is who he says he is..."

A Journey to 'Parkland'
Writer/director Peter Landesman on the untold stories of JFK's death
DAILY Screens  October 5, 2013, by Richard Whittaker
"...When journalist-turned-filmmaker Peter Landesman started writing the script for his JFK assassination film Parkland, he knew there was still drama in the oft-told tragedy. He said, "The movie's shocking, not because we don't know the outcome, but because the real journey of how we got there is so interesting and heroic."..."

Jackie
A portrait of the First Lady in the aftermath of JFK's assassination
starstarstarhalfstar
Film Review  December 23, 2016, by Marc Savlov
"...The broken heart and the bloodied but fiercely unbowed soul of the film rests squarely on the titular Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. Even in her shock and grief she fights to secure her husband’s historical legacy, most pointedly by demanding that JFK’s coffin would rest upon a horse-drawn caisson funeral procession down Pennsylvania Avenue to Arlington National Cemetery..."

Ron Howard tackles the Beatles
starstarstar
Film Review  September 9, 2016, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Certain key elements and figures (i.e., Brian Epstein) are glossed over, and the film’s U.S.-centric biases are front and center. Beatlemania is seen through the fulcrum of such events as JFK’s assassination and the escalating war in Vietnam..."

W.
Oliver Stone’s Bush portrait is a tale of two movies: one a humanizing portrait of a failure as a young man, the other a damning but unsurprising look inside an administration gone loopy on ideological zealotry.

Film Review  October 17, 2008, by Josh Rosenblatt
"...He cuts quickly from the future president’s fraternity hazing at Yale to his abbreviated courtship of a self-possessed young librarian named Laura (Banks), from his first unsuccessful foray into politics (highlighted by a wonderful but bruising debate between Bush and his opponent, Kent Hance, in the 1978 race for Texas’ 19th Congressional District where the inexperienced Republican learns a valuable lesson in the art of cutthroat politics) to his eventual rebirth as an evangelical Christian and his rise to the governorship of Texas. Had Stone stopped there and gone deeper, had he probed more subtly the Freudian angst and self-doubt of an heir apparent to a stern and disappointed father (would anyone put it past Stone to paint a sitting American president as Henry V?), had he examined more closely Bush’s political education at the feet of mastermind Karl Rove, then I might just be sitting here telling you about a new masterpiece from the man who brought us JFK and Nixon..."

Film Review  January 12, 2001, by Marc Savlov
"...Not so Costner's outrageous Boston-baked-beans accent, which fluctuates from admirably restrained to outright silly (à la “Why'd ya pahk the cah so fah from the bah? Now we gahtta waaahk!”) whenever the actor feels he may be upstaged by the events surrounding him. It's Greenwood, though, as the beleaguered JFK, who steals the picture with a nuanced, subtle performance..."

Film Review  August 20, 1999, by Marc Savlov
"...From its opening frames, in which we are privy to the arrival of Jesus Christ (Donovan) and his gal Friday Magdalena (played with irrepressible panache by British indie-rock fave P.J. Harvey) at New York's JFK airport, Hartley washes the images with odd camerawork, primary colors, and staccato editing..."
