Executive Action

Executive Action

The action deals with the conspiracy to assassinate President Kennedy. The filmmakers are confident that their theory of the real story is more logical and more likely than the official version. Perhaps they are right considering that it was rumoured that the CIA tried to sabotage the production.

This film is the forerunner to the TV series that is beginning on our screens this week which promises to be one of the best series that we are to be subjected to for some time.

The 1973 film stars Burt Lancaster.

The New York Times describes this as a poorly made film that is immensly enjoyable. One of the major faults is that the Madison Square Gardens crowd virtually doesn't appear. We want to see the audience reacting to the act, we want to see the clothes they were wearing etc.

But Jagger especially was as exhilerating as ever. I can't remember too well what all the songs were, but I know that many of their really great ones are included: like Jumping Jack Flash, Brown Sugar etc.

Good value as a documentary and incredibly enjoyable as entertainment.
