The debut of Plaza Man reminds us that “the cinema of assassination inspired by JFK” never ceases grow.
Send me links to the YouTube trailers of your favorite JFK film (feature, documentary, fictional, factual, or foreign).
Or just watch:
“14 conspiracy movies inspired by Dallas“(Nov. 18, 2013)
“‘Parkland’ struggles to find an audience” (Oct. 8, 1963)
“Which David Mamet will direct his JFK film?” (May 18, 2013)
“The escapist impulse of ‘Letters to Jackie,” (June 20, 2013)
“The Bystander Theory’ offers an indie take on JFK” (Sept. 14, 2013)

It is worth seeing Parkland to see Roy Kellerman swinging a machine gun outside Trauma One. This really happened and is documented elsewhere.
The portrayal of Robert Oswald is also highlighed in the movie. He and his brother LHO looked very much alike in real life.
I recently saw Four Days in November.
JFK’s wit, charisma, good looks and presence in events in San Antonio & Houston just jump out at you from the screen. He was well received in Dallas.
He was a great orator also.
We will not see the likes of him again in our lifetime.
It appears Jackie Kennedy did not take off her bloodied pink suit & pantyhose till after they all returned at 4:30 am on Nov 23 to the White House.
That part really got me. So sad. Such a horror show.
The whole situation regarding the brutal ambush demands the truth after 50+ years!
This one sounded intriguing to me but I’ve never seen it available anywhere:
Of the 44, the first 33 are the film “Years of Lightning, Days of Drums”.
The other 11 might be worth looking at. They include the Paschall film, the Hughes film, a couple of text documents about films, anda couple films that could be hidden and unknown gems turned over to US agencies. We don’t know until someone looks.
If you go to the National Archives site:
Document Type = MOTION PICTURE FILM
you will get 44 hits.
I’d love to see this
But besides a few fests it was never properly released or is it anywhere available?
The Murder of JFK: A Revisionist History, directed by Matthew White (1999).
