A Quick Tip by Trekscribbler

Having recently watched a small handful of documentaries recounting the known facts and some of the ardent speculation relating to the JFK assassination, I went into Parkland not really knowing what to expect, but I was mostly pleased with the film's dedication to depicting most of the known facts in a non-political fashion. Being familiar with some of the facts, I can say that, largely, they do a pretty solid job, though the take some modest liberties in order to present some moments a bit more dramatically for a theatrical audience; still these are small details that don't amount to historical revisionism so much as they are creative choices -- when you only have two hours to explore the details, you do have some limitations. If anything, I'd have to say some of the portrayals may've been a bit too dry (Billy Bob has only a handful of scenes, and its hard to sense any real grounding for his character, though he has one nice shouting moment that underscores an intense dedication to duty and service). If anything, Parkland will make you long for investigating these events even more, as the limitations of a theatrical release do hold the story back in some aspects. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
