Why are baby boomers so obsessed with
the Kennedy assassination? I mean,
cmon, hes dead, lets move on, eh?
Well, director/writer Neil Burger gets all
Oliver Stone with the idea in Interview
with the Assassin, a fake
documentary about a man who may or
may not have been the second gunman.
Cameraman Ron Kobeleski (Dylan
Haggerty) meets an old man who claims
to have conclusive evidence that he killed
Kennedy. Following him around the
country, from grassy knoll to conservative
conspiracy, Kobeleski is drawn into a
series of ever-more criminal occurrences
until things spin wildly out of control. This
is a fun movie, and Raymond Barry is
hilarious as assassin Walter Ohlinger,
but I dont think it was meant to be a
comedy. Still, it works as one, especially
for those like myself who were born in
1925 and/or 1975 and dont much care
about anything Kennedy-related, unless it
involves Ted without trousers.
